HC Deb 09 October 1945 vol 414 c70W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Health what is the cost to the ratepayers and the taxpayers of the sewer now being dug between Pratts Bottom and Knock-holt, in the area of the Orpington Urban District Council.

Mr. Bevan

The cost of the sewer in question was estimated at £22,345, but by reason of difficulties caused by shortage of labour this figure may be exceeded. A contribution of £4,043 will be made by the Ministry of Works towards the cost of the sewer.
