HC Deb 02 April 1963 vol 675 cc33-4W
55. Mr. Watkins

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what in- formation he has on the recent further flooding at Penybont, Radnorshire; whether any scheme has been proposed under the Land Drainage Act, 1961, by the appropriate authorities; and whether he will initiate an inquiry with a view to alleviating the effects of further flooding.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

No specific representations have been made to this Ministry about recent further flooding at Penybont, although I understand that floods have occurred in this area. The local authorities concerned have not submitted a scheme, but I understand that they have one under consideration. In view of this I do not see that an inquiry would serve any useful purpose.
