HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 c371W
Mr. Oakes

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will now name the chairman and his appointees to the regional water authorities in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Mr. Rippon

I named the chairmen-designate of the water authorities in a reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Hemel Hempstead (Mr. Allason) on 10th July 1973; and I confirm that I am making these appointments. In my reply to the hon. Member for Acton (Mr. Spearing) on 19th July I said that I hoped to announce shortly the names of my other appointments to the water authorities.
