HC Deb 06 July 1984 vol 63 c300W
Mr. Ray Powell

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what action he is taking to ensure that the Welsh water authority is not compelled to ration water.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

The Welsh water authority has already taken, and will continue to take action to ensure continuing supplies of water throughout their area. I cannot however guarantee that in the event of the drought continuing, that rationing might not be needed.
