HC Deb 13 July 1950 vol 477 cc127-8W
107. Mr. Mitchison

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the Mid-Northamptonshire Water Board has.about £50,000 worth of water pipes on order and that the long delays in delivery are seriously hindering the performance of the duties for which the board was recently constituted; and whether he will arrange priority for the board's order or otherwise assist it to get early deliveries.

Mr. Bevan

I regret the delay in the delivery of pipes but I am afraid that special priority for the board could be arranged only at the expense of other equally urgent needs.
