132. Mr. Ralph Howell

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether his Department has examined proposals for the establishment of a centralised national water authority; and if he will make a statement.

This is one of the matters which the Central Advisory Water Committee has been considering. Its report will be published next week. The Government's conclusions on it will be announced as soon as possible.
