HC Deb 02 August 1956 vol 557 cc198-9W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will make a statement about the increasing demand for water in Essex and the schemes designed to meet it.

Mr. Sandys

A water survey for Essex has been carried out by one of my engineering inspectors. A summary of his report is being prepared and I hope to make it available in the autumn to water undertakers, local authorities and other interested bodies, together with my recommendations.
