§ 58. Commander Pursey
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food the causes of the flooding on the west side of the River Hull, between Sculcoates Bridge and Scott Street Bridge, at the last equinoctial high water spring tide, the number of wharves in this section of the river which have been surveyed and reported to the Hull and East Yorkshire River Board for flood alleviation works, and the number of notices which are to be served on owners in this section requiring them to raise their wharves above flood level.
The flooding of this section of the River Hull appears to have been due to defects at two or possibly three sites. One site is to be attended to and the Hull Corporation is being recommended to serve a notice on the owner of the second site. A third site is being investigated.
I understand that the surveying of this length of the River Hull will be completed in time for consideration by the Corporation at its meeting next month when the service of notices will also be considered.90W
§ 59. Commander Pursey
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food the amount of free board, above the flood level of the last equinoctial high water spring tide, now required by the Hull and East Yorkishire River Board for the new flood alleviation works on the River Hull, and the number of wharves which have so far been found to be below this requirement.
These questions will doubtless be considered by the river board when the survey by the Hull Corporation has been completed.
