asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will give information as to the joint comprehensive water supply for northern Breconshire and parts of Radnorshire; and which local authorities are now included.

The scheme is being promoted by the Llanwrtyd Wells Urban District Council and the Builth and Colwyn Rural District Councils. It will also provide for a bulk supply of water to Builth Urban District Council. The award of a provisional grant of £300,000 under the Rural Water Supplies and Sewerage Acts, 1944 and 1951, to the promoting authorities was notified on 15th June, 1954.I am at present awaiting from those authorities the draft of an order setting up a joint board to operate the scheme.
