HC Deb 15 May 1968 vol 764 cc258-9W
71. Mr. Hooson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales, what plans he has to set up a Welsh Water Resources Board to work in conjunction with the existing Water Resources Board.

Mr. Ifor Davies

Ministerial responsibilities in the field of water conservation now lie, as regards Wales, with my right hon. Friend. In the discharge of these responsibilities he will continue to be advised by the Water Resources Board, which has an unrivalled knowledge and expertise which it would be wasteful and indeed impracticable to duplicate; and, on matters of particular relevance to Wales, by the Welsh Committee of the Board. My right hon. Friend has no plans for the setting up of a separate Water Resources Board for Wales.
