HC Deb 24 June 1954 vol 529 cc47-8W
27. Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Agriculture on what basis the North-East Lindsey Drainage Board area was defined; and how recently a detailed survey was made.

Sir T. Dugdale

The North-East Lindsey drainage district, like other drainage districts, was constituted to include such areas in the locality as would derive benefit or avoid danger as a result of drainage operations.

The boundaries of the district were surveyed in connection with a draft order deposited in 1944 that was withdrawn. This survey was checked when the new draft order and map were prepared for deposit in 1950. The proposed boundaries were further revised in the light of objections made to that draft order.
