§ Mr. Tudor Watkins
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what progress there has been in the alleviation of flooding scheme for Builth Wells by the River Wye Authority; and whether tenders for the work have yet been asked for.
§ Mr. Cledwyn Hughes
The River Authority is currently working on the detailed design of a scheme on the basis of the findings of an investigation carried out by the Hydraulics Research Station on its behalf. The Authority expects to sub-144W mit its proposals for consideration for grant during the first part of 1970. It would normally seek tenders for any work to be undertaken by contract after receiving my approval.
