§ Sir W. Robson Brown
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.
