asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether pro vision has been made in current estimates for an improved water supply at Bourley and Porton in place of that now existing, which was officially reported in 1932 as giving rise to anxiety and a feeling of insecurity, as financial stringency precluded necessary improvements?

It has not been found possible to provide funds in the current estimates for the improvement of the water supply at Bourley; but the Porton supply which previously gave rise to anxiety, has been improved by the installation of a more powerful pumping unit at Porton North and work on an additional bore hole is in progress.
