§ Mr. de Freitas
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he now has the information which will enable him to decide whether to introduce legislation to implement the recommendation made in paragraph 94 of the Report of the Land Drainage Legislation Sub-Committee of the Central Advisory Water Committee.
§ Sir T. Dugdale
No. The discussions to which I referred in my reply to the right hon. Member for Belper (Mr. G. Brown) on 21st February have not yet been completed and it is likely to be some time before decisions about legislation can be reached.142W
