HC Deb 04 August 1965 vol 717 c369W
Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

asked the Minister of Land and Natural Resources whether, in view of recent dry winters, he is proposing to make a special survey of facilities for water storage; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Willey

Under Section 14 of the Water Resources Act, 1963, river authorities, in consultation with the Water Resources Board, are to make an initial survey of the water resources of their area and of the existing and future demands for water. They will then draw up their plans.
