HC Deb 02 April 1968 vol 762 c58W
61. Mr. Webster

asked the Minister of Power what steps he is taking to ensure that there is safety from gas leaks in the Banwell district of Somerset.

Mr. Freeson

The South Western Gas Board have re-routed round Banwell their high pressure bulk supply main which formerly ran through the village. There is now only one gas main through the main streets and this is working at low pressure. Maintenance work on the joints of this main is about to be completed.
