§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement concerning his decision on the application by the Thames water authority to reduce the statutory minimum flow of water over Teddington weir, stating the old and new limits; and what effects he expects this will have on the quality of water in the upper tidal Thames.
§ Mr. Moynihan
I refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State's decision letter of 31 July and the inspector's report, copies of which have been placed in the Library of the House. I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
