§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will seek an urgent meeting with the chairman of the Welsh water authority to discuss with him what difficulties may be preventing his authority from repairing broken water pipes and re-establishing a pure supply of water in those areas affected by the recent strike.
§ Mr. Stradling Thomas
No. The authority foresees no problem in repairing broken water mains quickly and it is taking steps to ensure that water supplies are sterilised as soon as possible.
