HC Deb 05 May 1976 vol 910 cc365-6W
34. Mr. Michael Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his Department's estimate of the number of domestic households that are still not linked to main drainage systems.

Mr. John Silkin

As my right hon. Friend the Minister of State said in answer to the hon. Member for Maidstone (Mr. Wells) on 7th April—[Vol. 909, c. 410–411]—the water authorities estimate the Denton relief road section can be announced fairly shortly. On the M63, I have nothing to add to the reply given to my hon. Friend on 7th April.—[Vol. 909, c. 162.] With regard to the various other major trunk road proposals in Greater Manchester, the information is: that about 900,000 domestic properties in England and Wales are not connected to main sewers.
