§ 51. Mr. Will Owen
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what representations he has received from the North East Water Authority concerning the estimated shortage of water in the area; what action is being taken; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
My right hon. Friend has had no representations from the Northumbrian River Authority, on this matter, but I have been glad to learn that, to meet the expected shortage they are taking action on the lines suggested in the Interim Report of the Water Resources Board on water resources in the North of England.
