HC Deb 18 April 1951 vol 486 c175W
Mr. Watkins

asked the Minister of Local Government and Planning upon what date was the public local inquiry into the sewerage scheme for Crickhowell and Llangattock, Breconshire, held; why no further progress has been made with the scheme; what are the reasons for the delay in seeking tenders for its construction; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dalton

The inquiry was held on 5th October, 1949, and the Crickhowell Rural District Council were notified on 11th February, 1950, that the scheme had been approved in principle subject to agreement on technical design. A compulsory purchase order for the site of the disposal works was confirmed on 28th August, 1950. Delay in seeking tenders is due to the fact that the Welsh Board of Health are awaiting final plans from the council.
