HC Deb 31 March 1971 vol 814 c383W
134. Mr. Simeons

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what action has been taken by his Department to improve the returns of water abstractions, following receipt by the Water Resources Board of the Report of the Working Party set up to examine this matter.

Mr. Graham Page

We have modified the statistical returns submitted to the Department by statutory water undertakers; and we are consulting the British Waterworks Association about making the information in them available to the Water Resources Board and to individual river authorities.
