HC Deb 29 January 1964 vol 688 cc54-5W
Mr. N. McLean

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what consideration he has given to the representations recently made to him about the provision of water supplies to houses situated off the general run of the local water authority's mains; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Noble

Yes. In future, piping designed to serve such properties will be considered for grant under the Rural Water Supplies and Sewerage Acts on merits in the same way as other elements in schemes submitted by local water authorities.
