§ 46. Sir M. Stoddart-Scott
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he is satisfied with the long-term proposals of the city of Leeds in relation to providing water for the growing needs of its area of supply; and if he will require the Leeds Corporation to conserve more of its water which is still being permitted to run to waste.92W
§ Mr. Corfield
The corporation hopes to have two new sources available in 1965 and 1966. These should improve the present situation, but my right hon. Friend is not satisfied that they will wholly meet the needs of the area in the long term. He is assured that none of the present supplies is running to waste.
§ 47. Sir M. Stoddart-Scott
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs if he will require Leeds Corporation to inform him weekly of the daily consumption of water in the Leeds area of supply, the rainfall figures in its catchment area, the amount of water stored in each reservoir, the amount of water which is being permitted to run to waste, and the amount of water it has conveyed each day to Swinsty reservoir through the conduit from Leighton and Ilkton reservoirs and the river intakes in the Burn and Laver valleys.
§ Mr. Corfield
My right hon. Friend has asked for a fortnightly return of daily water consumption, of rainfall, and of the amount in each reservoir. There is no needs to ask for the information more frequently or to ask for additional information. He is assured that there is no water running to waste.
