HC Deb 12 July 1946 vol 425 c132W
Sir G. Fox

asked the Minister of Health (1) when it is anticipated that a water supply will be laid on at Fringford, Oxfordshire; whether it will be a piped supply or standpipes; and if he will take steps to improve the sanitation in this village;

(2) when it is anticipated that a water supply will be available at Souldern, Oxfordshire; whether it is intended to have piped water laid on or standpipes; and whether he is satisfied that the present water at the village pumps is adequate.

Mr. Bevan:

The parishes of Souldern and Fringford are included in proposals for a piped supply of water to the rural district of Ploughley, which, I understand, will shortly be submitted to my Department. Pending the submission of the scheme I am unable to say whether the water will he supplied by standpipes or conveyed into the houses; or when the supply will be afforded. The question of the sanitation at Fringford is for consideration by the rural district council in the first instance and I am bringing the matter to their notice.
