HC Deb 28 July 1976 vol 916 c268W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received since publication of the consultative document on the structure of water authorities about their becoming directly responsible to the elected representatives of the areas they cover.

Mr. Denis Howell

I have received a wide range of representations on this as on other aspects of the review. I shall take these all into account in reaching conclusions after the consultation period.
