§ Mr. Harris
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has yet reached any conclusions about the South West water authority's applications for discharge consents in respect of the Penzance and St. Ives sewerage scheme.
§ Mr. Moynihan
The Department is about to write to all those who made representations at the time these proposals were originally advertised, with copies of the water authority's response to the objections raised. I hope we shall be able to reach a decision on the way forward during May, once this further round of consultation is complete.
