asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that there has recently been an acute shortage of water supply for the inhabitants of Grange-over-Sands; whether any qualified water engineer has been asked by the local authority to advise on this shortage; and whether that authority is adopting his recommendations?
I have received complaints and one of my inspectors has investigated the matter locally. A normal supply is now being given. I propose forthwith to communicate with the local authority on the question of permanently improving their supply. I am not aware that they have yet appointed a consulting engineer.
