§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will take immediate steps to write off the capital debt of the Welsh water authority, with effect for the financial year 1986–87.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
No. The hon. Gentleman will appreciate from paragraphs 100 and 102 of "Privatisation of the Water Authorities in England and Wales" (Cmnd. 9734) that my right hon. Friend will be discussing with the Welsh water authority the appropriate restructuring of its balance sheet.
