49. Mr. Kenneth Lewis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take steps further to co-ordinate the work of his Department with that of water authorities and local councils to secure more effective and timely flood prevention and precaution measures.

No. I am satisfied that there is adequate co-ordination between my Department and water authorities and district councils in the exercise of their powers under the Land Drainage Act 1976.
