HC Deb 18 May 1956 vol 552 cc213-4W
Mr. Ness Edwards

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware that the Gelligai Urban District Council is unable to proceed with its housing project because of the inadequacy of the domestic water supply; and if he will now reconsider the application of the Rhymney Valley Water Board for a grant for the purpose of providing an adequate water supply for the area.

Mr. Powell

I take it that the hon. Member has in mind the council's housing project at Pontlottyn. Arrangements have been made to ensure that adequate water supplies are available for about a hundred new houses there. My right hon. Friend is having inquiries made about water supplies for the rest of this housing project and will communicate with the hon. Member in due course. The Answer to the last part of the Question is in the negative.
