§ MR. H. J. WILSON (Yorkshire, W.R., Holmfirth)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if he will state what has been done, or is now being done, in India for carrying out the recommendations of the Scott-Moncrieff Commission for the increase of water-storage works of comparatively small size and cost; what surveys for actual work have been made, more especially in Northern Gujerat and the Deccan; what definite projects have been prepared and sanctioned and in what locality has actual work been done; and is any water actually being impounded during the present monsoon.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) May I refer the right hon. Gentleman to the reply made to the hon. Member for Flintshire on Monday, the 25th instant.†
