HC Deb 24 October 1947 vol 443 c8W
Mr. J. P. L. Thomas

asked the Minister of Health what is the reason for the delay in building houses in the area administered by the Hereford rural district council.

Mr. Bevan

The main cause of delay has been the selection of sites for which a pure and adequate water supply could be provided. This difficulty has now been overcome as respects a number of sites, and preparations for building are being pressed forward.
