§ 60. Mr. CHORLTON
asked the Minister of Health if he proposes to set up any conjoint committees to co-ordinate the work of adjacent regional water committees, in view of the advantages that would arise from the further extension of common planning, together with the increased opportunity for interlinking of water undertakings?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Shakespeare)
It is the policy of the Ministry to encourage the setting up of co-ordinating committees where this would serve a useful purpose, and the matter is receiving the active attention of the Advisory Committee on Water.
§ Mr. CHORLTON
Will there be a coordinating committee set up in the two parts of Lancashire, the South-West and the North-West?
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
Negotiations are in active progress at the present time, and I would rather not say anything at the, present moment.
