HC Deb 11 May 1950 vol 475 c77W
38. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Health if he has now given authority to the Hungerford Rural District Council to proceed with the Lambourn Valley Sewerage Scheme which has been under consideration for four years; and if he will state the total cost of the scheme and the amount of Government grant that will be paid.

Mr. Bevan

This scheme has been approved in principle, but I have not yet been able to authorise a start with the work. Authority to proceed will, however, be given as soon as it is practicable in conformity with the capital investment programme. The estimated cost is £140,446 and a grant of £55,000 has been provisionally allocated.
