HC Deb 14 November 1988 vol 140 c502W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether any of the water supplied to Parliament comes via lead pipes; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Chope

None of the water to taps within the Palace of Westminster which are labelled for drinking purposes is supplied through lead pipes. The position regarding other taps not so labelled is less clear and some supplies may still pass through sections of lead pipes.
