§ 55. Mr. Watkins
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what in- 34W 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.
