HC Deb 08 February 1945 vol 407 cc2239-40W
Mr. De la Bère

asked the Minister of Health whether, in connection with rebuilding on a large scale, for which plans are being made, he will encourage the installation of covered and protected pipes in view of the damage done to homes over a wide period of years by burst pipes due to no provision having been made against specially severe weather during the winter months.

Mr. Willink

Yes, Sir. Recommendations to this end have already been made in the Housing Manual, 1944.
