asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the council houses, school and farms in Howey, in the Colwyn rural district, have had no water supply for at least two months and despite complaints to the council and the Welsh Board of Health the position is getting more serious; and whether he will cause inquiries to be made as well as supplying water immediately to these places.

The supply has been interrupted by a breakdown of the pumping plant. The District Council have arranged for the plant to be overhauled and repaired and for water to be carted to premises without a supply. One of my inspectors is visiting the area to discuss with the Council the measures required to avoid further breakdowns.
