asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many schemes for improving the water supply in Cumberland and Westmorland have been put up to him by local authorities or statutory undertakers since October, 1951; how many have been approved; and the total sum involved.

Ten water supply schemes for Westmorland and 42 for Cumberland have been submitted to me since 1951. Of these, all the former and 36 of the latter have been approved to an estimated cost of £10,350 and £428,292 respectively.
