§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the latest position following discussions between the London borough of Hillingdon and his Department concerning substantial damage to property caused by pin-holing of water pipes as a result of corrosion pitting; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Denis Howell
The investigations by the Rickmansworth and Uxbridge Valley Water Company to which I referred in my answer to the hon. Member of 16th April 1975 are continuing. My Department has just received a letter from the Borough Council enclosing further material on this problem, which we will of course consider.
