HC Deb 08 May 1952 vol 500 c63W
84. Mr. Watkins

asked the Minister of Health how it is proposed that residents in the Llanwrtyd Wells urban district and the adjoining parishes should register births and deaths; whether he is satisfied that the transport facilities are adequate to register deaths at Builth Wells; and what suggestions he has to meet the request of the urban council of Llanwrtyd Wells for more convenient facilities.

Miss Hornsby-Smith

Under the approved scheme for the area, which came into force in 1934, births and deaths can be registered in Llanwrtyd Wells on any Wednesday afternoon between two and three, or on other days of the week in an office open all day at Builth Wells. I understand that a bus runs between Llanwrtyd Wells and Builth Wells four times a day in each direction. Responsibility for facilities meeting the needs of the area rests with the Breconshire County Council in the first instance and my right hon. Friend sees no reason to intervene.
