§ Mr. Jopling
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) why he did not hold a detailed feasibility study of the alternative proposals to the Manchester Water Order, 1965, suggested to his inspector by the Winster Valley Preservation Society;
(2) what specific parts of the alternative proposals put up by the Winster Valley Preservation Society to the Manchester Water Order, 1965, convinced him that a detailed study of the plan was not worthwhile.
§ Mr. Crossman
My inspector thought these proposals merit consideration as a potential long-term scheme but that they are not a practicable alternative to the short-term projects in the draft Water Order. I agree.
