Mr. Cryer

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether grant application has been made by the Yorkshire water authority for the rebuilding of Bradford Beck and a comprehensive flood alleviation scheme; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Howard

Bradford city council and the Yorkshire water authority have submitted a draft joint application for European regional development fund grant for the combined Bradford Beck flood alleviation scheme and phase la of the Bradford Beck sewage strategy. The works are included in the Bradford integrated development operation (IDO).

Once a full application has been received it will be considered by the IDO co-ordinating committee who will assess the scheme's compatibility with the strategy and objectives of the programme.
