HC Deb 13 December 1928 vol 223 c2332

asked the Minister of Agriculture the extent of lands subject to floods in the Welsh counties; and whether any schemes for land drainage in Wales are contemplafed in the Ministry's recent announcement?

Captain BOWYER

I have been asked to reply. My right hon. Friend regrets that he is unable to state the area of land in Wales which may be subject to floods, but any schemes which may be submitted from Wales by those eligible to receive grants will, of course, receive consideration.


Will the hon. and gallant Gentleman make known to his right hon. Friend the desirability of having a complete survey of the land's liable to flooding in Scotland, England and Wales, in view of the necessity of taking early steps to secure adequate drainage?
