HC Deb 05 November 1945 vol 415 cc1043-4W
Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that in the village of Tetney, Lincolnshire, the system of night soil collection has broken down; that the matter was reported to the parish council by the sanitary inspector, but no action was taken; and since over 80 householders have petitioned asking for a publicly-operated service and there is fear of infection, what steps does he propose to take.

Mr. Bevan

My attention had not previously been drawn to this matter. I am making inquiries and will communicate with the hon. Member.
