HC Deb 10 July 1923 vol 166 cc1199-200W

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the defective water supply at Hathersage, in the Bakewell rural district area, which is privately owned and is not under the necessary supervision to prevent pollution; whether he is aware that many people would build houses in Hathersage if a sufficient supply of pure water was laid on to the town's mains; and whether, seeing that such supply can be had from the Derwent Valley water board, whose supply rims through the whole district, he will take such steps as are necessary to bring about the desired result?


The Minister is aware of the local circumstances, and proposes to arrange that an Engineering Inspector shall visit the district at a convenient opportunity.
