HC Deb 02 November 1937 vol 328 cc744-5W
Mr. Levy

asked the Minister of Health what progress has now been made with the survey of water resources. potential as well as actual; and when it is hoped to complete this survey?

Mr. Bernays

I would refer my hon. Friend to the Second Annual Report of the Inland Water Survey Committee published on the 10th October. I understand that their first publication of records is in the press. The survey will be continuous. It will be appreciated that measurements over a long period of years are required before any reliable calculation of water resources can be made.
