§ Mr. Simon Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will provide figures for the housing investment programme allocation for the London borough of Southwark for each year from 1978–79 to 1987–88 (a) at current prices and (b) at constant prices.
§ Mr. Tracey
Housing investment programme allocations and capital expenditure on housing for the London borough of Southwark for these years have been as follows:
authorities in England and Wales to consult the relevant water authority when they receive planning applications for fish farms which involve works or operations either in the bed or on the banks of a river, and to take account of any representations received in determining the application. Water authorities control discharges from fish farms under the Control of Pollution Act 1974. Certain abstractions for fish farming purposes require licences from the water authority under the Water Resources Act 1963 and the Government have expressed their intention of bringing all such abstractions under control.
§ Mr. Colvin
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what information he has as to what action 435W is being taken by water authorities in England to rear fish to meet the restocking requirements of their rivers and waterways.
§ Mr. Gummer
I have been asked to reply.
Information on the restocking of salmon by the regional water authorities in England and Wales is published annually in summary form by my Department's fisheries laboratory at Lowestoft. A copy of the latest publication "Salmon and Migratory Trout Fisheries Statistics for England and Wales, 1985" is being placed in the Library of the House. Information on restocking and on the rearing of fish for restocking purposes is also published by some water authorities in their annual reports to Ministers, which are also available in the Library of the House.
