§ Mr. Anthony Greenwood
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many new sewage schemes, or extensions of existing sewage schemes, have been approved by his Department during the past 12 months; what is the capital expenditure involved; how many such schemes have been submitted, but are still awaiting approval; and what capital expenditure is involved.
§ Mr. H. Macmillan
Five hundred and seventy-eight schemes were authorised to start during the twelve months ending on 31st May, 1953, at a total capital cost of £173/4 million. I regret that the information asked for in the second part of the Question is not readily available.
