§ Mr. SHEPHERD
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the water supply in certain districts in the Holbeach (Lincs) area has been condemned as unfit for human consumption; and what steps, if any, are being taken about it?
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
I am aware of the unsatisfactory condition of the water supply in this area. A joint scheme for a new supply is proposed by four neighbouring councils, including Holbeach, 1473W and a Provisional Order for constituting the joint authority is about to be made and will be submitted to Parliament.
