§ Mr. Carlisle
I have been asked to reply.
I am arranging to obtain such information as is available, and I shall write to the hon. Member.
§ Mr. Graham Page
I regret that the information asked for in the first part of the Question is not available, since river authorities are not required to publish or make returns of the numbers of incidents. We intend to provide, in legislation that my right hon. and learned Friend hopes to introduce in the present Parliament, for more information of this kind to be made available to the public.
The second part of the Question is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department, who will write to the hon. Member.
