§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether, following his announcement in December concerning the water charges dispute between the Welsh water authority and the Severn-Trent water authority, he will now meet hon. Members to discuss this problem.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
The reasons for the joint decision by the Secretary of State for Wales and the Secretary of State for the Environment were set out fully in the decision letter of 13 December 1982. Detailed terms must now be agreed between the two authorities. Meanwhile, meetings with hon. Members would be inappropriate.
