HC Deb 24 February 1966 vol 725 c603
10. Mr. T. W. Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what progress is being made with the amalgamation of water undertakings in Wales.

Mr. Goronwy Roberts

When the first circular on regrouping was issued in 1956, the number of water undertakings in Wales was 146. By 1st April next they will have been reduced to 57.

Mr. Jones

Is my hon. Friend aware that, paradoxically enough, water is a burning question and that his reply will give great satisfaction in the Principality?
