§ 32. Mr, T. WILLIAMS
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has yet appointed the special Drainage Commission for the Doncaster district, as recommended by the Royal Commission on Mining Subsidence; and, if so, is he in a position to give the names to the House?
Every effort is being made to complete the arrangements for setting up the Special Commission for the Doncaster area, but there are many interests affected and I regret that I am not yet able to announce the composition of the Commission.
§ Mr. WILLIAMS
Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware of the already lengthy delay and that any further delay is likely to be very disastrous?
The hon. Member's interest in this matter has already led me to send an important and urgent reminder to other Government Departments concerned.
We are in negotiation with other Government Departments, and as soon as we get their answers, I shall be able to come to a, decision.
