HC Deb 13 February 1989 vol 147 c27W
Mr. Beggs

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland under what circumstances a designated water course is de-designated; and in what state of maintenance such water courses are handed over to those landowners with riparian rights.

Mr. Viggers

Water courses are de-designated by the Northern Ireland Drainage Council in circumstances where their maintenance at public expense is no longer justified. Such water courses become the responsibility of the riparian landowners in their existing condition.
