HC Deb 01 April 1969 vol 781 cc92-3W
Mr. Harry Howarth

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) on how many occasions houses in Wollaston Road, Bozeat, Northamptonshire, have been flooded; and what assistance he is giving to help reduce the damage to property;

(2) what proposals have been made to him to overcome the flooding of houses in Wollaston Road, Bozeat, Northamptonshire; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. K. Robinson

I understand that houses in the road have been flooded three times in the past twelve months, and that only the prompt action of the fire brigade prevented further flooding last month. My right hon. Friend has approved proposals recently made by the Wellingborough Rural District Council to construct relief sewers.
