§ Mr. Errington
asked the Minister of Health (1) whether it is now possible to state if the cost of the Rimrose Brook drainage scheme will exceed the estimated sum of £267,000; and, if so, by how 543W much and upon what part of the work will the extra money be spent;
(2) whether any progress has been made with the Rimrose Brook drainage scheme; and whether there is any reason for the delay in commencing this important work?
§ Sir K. Wood
Negotiations with the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board have involved certain alterations to the plans, but I anticipate that the amended proposals will be submitted at an early date. I have no information of an increase in the estimate of the cost.
