HC Deb 27 January 1944 vol 396 c869W
Mr. J. Hollins

asked the Minister of Health if he will give instructions to local authorities that no housing will be permitted on sites not having main drainage and sewerage.

Mr. Willink

Wherever a public sewerage system is, or is likely to be, available in the locality local authorities are expected to select housing sites which can be readily connected up with the public system. For quite small groups of houses in rural areas it is, however, possible to make arrangements for sewage disposal involving no difficulty for the tenant, and I hope shortly to be issuing some advice to local authorities on methods which can be adopted to this end.
