HC Deb 14 July 1939 vol 349 cc2577-8W
Mr. Stokes

asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied that the problems relating to water supply and drainage have been adequately considered in connection with both summer and evacuation camps?

Mr. Elliot

Yes, Sir. These matters are fully considered by the National Camps Corporation in consultation with my Department, and the layout plans for each camp are also referred to the appropriate local authorities for their observations. A piped water supply is regarded as essential, and drainage will be connected either to a main sewer or, where that is not possible, to a properly constructed independent sewage disposal unit.
