HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 c190W
Mrs. Middleton

asked the Minister of Health what is the total number of habitations in the parish of Bickleigh, Devon; how many of these are without main drainage or cesspits; and whether he will take steps to have the village of Bickleigh connected with the existing nearby sewerage system constructed and used by Admiralty establishments.

Mr. Bevan

There are 220 permanent houses; some 36 houses drain to modern works; most of the remainder of the development is scattered and without main drainage. I have no information of the total number of cesspits in the parish. I shall be ready to consider any schemes submitted by the local authority for main drainage.
