§ Mr. LIDDALL
asked the Minister of Health whether he will issue a circular from his Department to local authorities encouraging the formation of advisory regional water committees in order to provide all our towns and villages with a pure water supply and to provide work for the unemployed?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
A number of regional water committees have already been formed and the Central Advisory Water Committee is now considering where others should be formed. With the supplies of water already available for populated areas, it is not likely that many large new schemes will be required in the immediate future. My right hon. Friend is proposing to issue a circular on rural supplies, which present the greatest difficulty.
