HC Deb 23 October 1961 vol 646 c17W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what grant is to be made towards the prevention of flooding at Ongar Road, Abridge, Essex, which affects Hillmans Cottages.

Mr. Vane

I understand that the Essex River Board acting as the Internal Drainage Board for the area is preparing a scheme for this purpose. Its proposals, if approved, would attract a grant of 50 per cent.
