HC Deb 10 May 1932 vol 265 c1732W

asked the Minister of Transport what is his attitude to the scheme of improvement to prevent the River Tawe overflowing and causing damage to property and danger to the public and to the health of the people at Pontardawe; and whether he will sanction the work to proceed and make a grant towards the cost?


I have been asked to reply. A scheme of improvement was submitted to my Department in 1930 and investigated. It was subsequently under revision by the Pontardawe Rural District Council. If it is resubmitted I will cause further examination to be made. There are, however, no moneys at my disposal available for a grant towards the cost.
