asked the Minister of Health how much has been spent on improving water supplies in rural areas since 1945.

I have no information of the amount expended. Works to the value of £28,167,080 have been authorised for commencement during the period 1st August, 1945, to 31st October, 1950. This includes £7,400,000 authorised for farm water supply schemes, but does not include the sums authorised specifically for supplies to houses erected by local authorities in rural areas, details of which are not readily available.
