§ 35. Mr. Mather
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will report on the progress of the Mole Valley Flood Alleviation Scheme.
§ Mr. Strang
As I told the hon. Member on 23rd January and 20th March, the Thames Water Authority is now responsible for the progress of this scheme. I understand, however, that work on the first phase of the scheme—the underpinning of the Esher railway viaduct—is now under way.
