There is little doubt that whereas in those days the opportunity to discuss PVC was appreciated, some embarrassment was experienced by the lack of information they were able to offer as regards both availability and technical details in support of the use of PVC pipes for underground drainage. 

It could be said that in those days the Wimborne & Cranborne RDC were looking to PVC as a 'future' material for small to medium diameter sewers, before the product was marketed or tried. Subsequent events have clearly justified this belief ...
