asked the Minister of Health whether he has received complaints as to the shortage of water supplies in the area of the Blackwell Rural Council of Derbyshire; whether an inspector from his Department has already investigated the matter; whether any Report has yet been issued covering the question; and, if so, what is the nature of such Report?


Complaints have been received and an investigation has been made. It is not proposed to publish any Report; what is required is to devise means of augmenting the water supply, and I am seeing what measures can be taken to this end.

Has the right hon. Gentleman's Department considered the advisability of the national collection of this water?

That is rather too large a question to be dealt with now.
