HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 c307W
73. Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the increasing water consumption in the Stafford area and the dangerously low level of storage capacity at periods of peak flow, he will reconsider the decision to defer for at least twelve months the scheme for a new reservoir at Milford.

Mr. Bevan

No. In reaching my decision I was fully aware of the factors to which my hon. Friend refers.
