§ Mr. Derek Page
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what steps he is taking to ensure that Departments concerned with aspects of a Wash Barrage, other than water conservation, such as port facilities and land reclamation, are consulted in connection with the desk study of the project by the Water Resources Board.327W
§ Mr. Greenwood
The purpose of the study is to assess the scope for water conservation in the Wash. It is expected to indicate those interests, including navigation, communications and land reclamation, which should be investigated if a full feasibility study is undertaken. The Water Resources Board will undertake any consultations necessary in this connection.
