HC Deb 07 March 1939 vol 344 c1942W
Mr. Lambert

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the inadequate water supplies in North Devon; and whether he will take steps to augment these supplies in view of the possible necessity of billeting children and others in that area during a time of emergency?

Mr. Elliot

I am aware of the need for improved water supplies in some of the rural areas in North Devon. As regards the last part of the question, I would refer my right hon. Friend to the reply given to the hon. Member for Romford (Mr. Parker) on 27th February.
