§ Mr. Ridsdale
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make extra funds available to the Anglian Water Authority in order to allow it to proceed with sea defence work at Jaywick.
§ Mr. Strang
No. The Anglian Water Authority's proposed works at Jaywick have already been approved by the Department for grant aid at the authorised rate. It is for the Authority to decide what priority it should give to this project in the light of other demands made on its resources.
