§ Mr. CHORLTON
asked the Minister of Health if he will report the progress 750W made in the areas in which serious water scarcity prevailed in the way of new undertakings or the setting up of joint boards to cover regional areas?
Sir H. YOUNG
Up to the present, the towns generally have well withstood the undoubted strain of the exceptional drought. As regards rural areas, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Stone (Sir J. Lamb) on 12th March.
