§ Mr. Hooson
asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many county councils in Wales have expressed themselves to be in favour of setting up a Welsh Water Resources Board; and how many county councils have expressed them-r elves to be opposed to the idea.
§ Mr. Cledwyn Hughes
The Montgomeryshire County Council, which proposed the establishment of a separate Board for Wales, did not ask county councils to tell me their views. But I have received letters from six county councils, including Montgomeryshire, all of which support the idea.
