HC Deb 27 October 1960 vol 627 c304W
Mr. Smithers

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he is aware of the serious flooding of the River Test between Stockbridge and Romsey on Sunday, 9th October; and whether he will consult with the Hampshire River Board with a view to preventing a recurrence.

Mr. Godber

I have been asked to reply.

I am aware of this flooding at Stockbridge and Romsey which has caused much inconvenience. I understand that the River Board is already investigating the reasons for the flooding and will consider, at a board meeting next week, what remedial works may be practicable.
