HC Deb 08 July 1974 vol 876 c370W
Mr. Palmer

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what has been the total amount of money granted to the city of Bristol from national funds during the period 1964 to 1974 for works designed to give storm water relief and the avoidance of flooding.

Mr. Denis Howell

None. Bristol was, however, one of the local authorities which received a special grant towards expenditure on emergency assistance to the public following the serious flooding in the West Country and South-East England in 1968.
