HC Deb 08 February 1926 vol 191 c672W
Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he can make any announcement as to the introduction of a Land Drainage Bill this Session.


I hope to introduce this Session a small Bill to confer greater powers on county councils with regard to land drainage. Arising out of the recently issued Report of the Commission which investigated the situation in the Ouse drainage district. I am reconsidering the whole question of the law relating to land drainage, but I am not yet in a position to make any statement as to the introduction of amending, legislation.
