HC Deb 18 December 1945 vol 417 cc1302-3W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Works whether he is aware that a village plumber who also engages in well-sinking and installing hot water piping for market garden purposes, because he is now therefore registered under a defence regulation as a civil engineer, is prohibited from repairing domestic piping and any burst pipes in the winter; and will he take steps to remedy this position forthwith.

Mr. Tomlinson

No, Sir; I do not understand how such a case could arise, but if the hon. Member will give me particulars of any case he has in mind, I shall be pleased to make inquiries.
