HC Deb 09 May 1963 vol 677 cc79-80W
24. Sir M. Stoddart-Scott

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs how much water per day over and above the amount required by the Leeds Corporation Consolidated Act, 1905, was allowed to run from Lindley reservoir between 26th April and 29th April without passing through a gauge; and if he will repeal the Leeds Corporation (Drought) Order, 1963, as the reservoir would have been full on 30th April if a quantity of water had not been permitted to run to waste.

Sir K. Joseph

I am informed that between 26th and 29th April the Corporation were testing an emergency outlet valve which carries no gauge, but that the water run off was approximately the statutory amount. I see no ground for repealing the order.
