HC Deb 11 March 1948 vol 448 cc177-8W
86. Mr. Gunter

asked the Minister of Health when the Rochford Rural District Council may expect a reply to their letter of November, 1947, with regard to water supply for that rural area.

Mr. Bevan

I regret the delay which has occurred, but there were several features about the District Council's proposal which call for an examination in greater detail than usual. A reply has now been sent.

Mr. Leslie

asked the Minister of Health whether he has yet come to an agreement with Stockton Rural Council over the supply of water for residents a: Whinney Hill and farms in the neighbourhood.

Mr. Bevan

The Stockton Rural District Council have submitted a comprehensive scheme part of which I have approved at an estimated cost of £3,753; the remainder is being considered by my technical advisers.
