[From Ocr Parliamentary Reporter.]


The matter of the alleged insecurity of the embankment at the Woodhaugh Reservoir was brought before the Houso this afternoon by Mr Ross, who read the letter appearing in the Stak from Mr Grant, commenting on the danger which existed. He said that the member for Dunedin East was also inquiring what action would be taken.

The Minister of Works replied that the Government had no objectioa to lend the assistance of any of their engineers to this work, the Government being anxious to do anything they could for the relief of the inhabitants of Dunedin if any danger existed.

Mr Pyke said that there undoubtedly was a leak, and the dispute was whether it came from the reservoir bank or from a crevice in the rock at the side of it. It would not be pleasant for the families of members to be swept away especially when their husbands were away from homo.- (Laughter.)
