HC Deb 11 July 1955 vol 543 cc151-2W
Mr. Patrick Maitland

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) what progress he has made in discussions with local authorities about introducing legislation to advance land drainage;

(2) which local authority associations have made representations to him asking for a survey of land drainage needs.

Mr. J. Stuart

There were preliminary discussions some time ago with local authority associations but difficulties arose over financial questions. Since then I have not received any representations on this subject from any of the local authority associations, but I am actively considering the practicability of measures to deal with certain aspects of the matter.
