§ 14. Mr. Bence
asked the Minister of Land and Natural Resources if he is satisfied that the Water Resources Board are recruiting sufficient qualified staff to enable them to discharge their functions; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Willey
The Board's compliment is 20 civil engineering posts, of which 16 are filled, and 12 geological posts, of which 7 are filled. This is reasonably satisfactory. The Board will be reviewing the situation in the autumn.
