HC Deb 14 February 1957 vol 564 c204W
63. Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is aware of the dissatisfaction and sense of injustice felt by many people in north Lincolnshire over the drainage rate; and if he will make a statement on the correspondence sent to him from Immingham.

Mr. Amory

I am aware that there is some dissatisfaction about drainage rates in the North-East Lindsey drainage district. I have had no recent correspondence on this subject from the Immingham area, but I understand that the parish council have recently written to the Lincolnshire River Board, with whom the initiative rests for any alteration of the boundary of the drainage district.
