HC Deb 22 June 1944 vol 401 c358W
Sir W. Edgé

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether his attention has been called to the refusal of a small supply of water to cottages abutting on an aerodrome, the identity of which has been forwarded to him; and whether he will investigate the circumstances to see if this concession can be made without interfering with the work of the aerodrome.

Sir A. Sinclair

The Air Ministry is bound by its contract with the corporation of the borough concerned not to supply water to any other consumer, except a Department of State, without the consent of the corporation. If the rural district council can obtain this consent, no objection to the supply would be raised by the Air Ministry.
