HC Deb 16 February 1977 vol 926 cc231-2W
36. Mr. Skinner

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish his guidelines to the regional water authorities on measures to restrict public spending on water supply.

Mr. Freeson

The notes of guidance deal simply with the moratorium on new construction work. A copy has been placed in the Library, and copies are freely available on request to my Department.
