asked the Minister of Health if he will give an estimate of how many tons of cast tubes and pipes not exceeding six inches internal diameter, and wrought and welded tubes exceeding six inches internal diameter would have been required to meet the demands connected with rural water supply schemes submitted and approved in principle in the years ended 31st March, 1946, 1947, 1948 and 1949; and how many tons were in fact available for this purpose.
