§ 52. Mr. J. Morgan
asked the Minister of Health on what grounds the South 588 Westmorland Rural Council have condemned as unfit for human consumption water from a well in the village of Sedgwick; and what steps this local authority has taken to provide the affected householders with an alternative supply?
§ Mr. Elliot
The council closed the well on the advice of their medical officer of health, based on bacteriological examination of the water. A piped supply has been provided and runs through the village.
§ Mr. Morgan
Does the expense fall on the persons whose water supply has been cut off in the other case?
