HC Deb 22 February 1978 vol 944 cc658-9W
Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in view of the difficulties faced by the North West Water Authority because of its inheritance of dilapidated physical assets, he will provide additional Government finance so that the authority can deal with the problems such as those as the pollution of Kirkby Brook.

Mr. Marks

My Department is considering the representations made by the authority about the condition of its buried assets and the associated financial problems.
