HC Deb 21 December 1967 vol 756 c497W
Mr. Pardoe

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what representations he has received concerning contract number 192 for an extension of the water supply from Kilkhampton to Stibb and Poughill; and if he will now approve the expenditure of £25,400 on this scheme.

Mr. Greenwood:

I have received a copy of a letter addressed to the North Devon Water Board in November by two residents of Stibb, and on 13th December the hon. Member wrote to me enclosing a petition signed by fourteen others. I am awaiting information from the Board about the urgency of the need for the scheme before deciding whether it can properly be carried out at the present time.
