asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, in the light of the recent evidence contained in the report of Surrey County Council, a copy of which is in his possession, he will reconsider his decision not to hold a public inquiry into the subject of floods in the Thames Valley, with particular reference to the flooding of the tributary streams.

Mr. John Mackie

My right hon. Friend and my right hon. Friend the Minister of Housing and Local Government will shortly be replying to petitions on this point and I will write to the hon. Member at that time.
