HC Deb 19 October 1966 vol 734 c64W
Mr. John Robertson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the Scottish Water Advisory Committee will submit its final report; and when he will introduce the proposed legislation to reorganise the arrangements for water supply in Scotland.

Mr. Ross

The final report of the Scottish Water Advisory Committee is being published today and copies are available in the Vote Office. I am grateful to the Committee for completing its work so quickly. Generally I have accepted the Committee's recommendations as the basis for the legislation which I expect to introduce within the next few months, and I am consulting the local authority associations.
