HC Deb 27 March 1933 vol 276 c690W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that a scheme for the River Dysynni, Merioneth, has been prepared by the catchment area, authority and sanctioned by the late Government, with a promise of grant; what progress has been made with the scheme; and whether the Government is now prepared to contribute to the cost?


I am not aware of the scheme referred to in the first part of the question. A scheme was, however, submitted by the Dysynni Valley Drainage Board under the 1926 programme of State-aided land drainage improvement schemes and was approved for grant by the Ministry in March, 1927: this scheme is now nearing completion and the Government has made a grant of 50 per cent towards the cost so far incurred.
