HC Deb 11 May 1978 vol 949 c598W
Mr. Molloy

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he has yet received the report of the departmental investigation into the failure of the flood warning arrangements in North-West London last year.

Mr. Strang

I have now received the report which considers in some detail the causes of the failure of the flood warning system in the Brent and Crane catchments last August and makes a number of suggestions and recommendations for improvements. I believe these will greatly assist the authorities concerned in the steps they are taking to ensure that all possible warning is given of any future flooding. I am sending a copy of the report to my hon. Friend and to other hon. Members who have expressed concern about the problem. I am also arranging for copies to be sent to all the authorities involved and placing a copy in the Library of the House.
