In regard to the schemes still under consideration I understand that decisions upon three are unavoidably deferred, in one case because the corporation do not possess the necessary statutory authority, and in the other two cases in order to allow the Sherwood Area Water Authorities Regional Advisory Committee an opportunity of considering the proposals in conjunction with the report of their Technical Sub-Committee on the allocation of the water resources of the Sherwood Area amongst the authorities concerned.
