HC Deb 16 July 1984 vol 64 c56W
Mr. David Young

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether any arrangements have now been made for transferring reserves from one water authority area to another; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gow

There are several schemes for inter-regional transfers of water in normal circumstances, and in some places it is practicable to make special arrangements when water is exceptionally short.
