HC Deb 27 April 1948 vol 450 c38W
Mr. Sidney Shephard

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the application of the Newark Rural District Council for a water supply scheme for the southern parishes in their area has been held up pending the result of the West Kesteven bore; and when approval will be given to the scheme.

Mr. Bevan

The reply to the first part of the Question is, "Yes." I shall shortly be in a position to approve the sinking of the borehole referred to, and the Newark scheme will be approved as soon as a sufficient supply from the borehole is proved.
