§ Mr. Morley
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment which water abstraction plants for domestic use in the Anglian water region are complying with EEC limits on the nitrate levels in water supply; which are not; and on what dates each of the plants which are not complying will comply with the limits.
§ Mr. Moynihan
With the exception of the following:
Isleham Congham Bircham Waneham Bridge Fring Drove Lane (Clayhill) Sedgeford Barrow Beachamwell Ulceby Gayton Otby/Bully Hills Marham Aswarby Moulton Binbrook Bedford Haborough
Little London Bowthorpe Branston Booths Lyng Forge Thorpe Harpley
all remaining water treatment plants in the Anglian water authority region comply with the nitrate standard in the EC drinking water directive.
Programmes of improvement have been submitted to my Department and, depending on the progress of the development work now in hand, all plants should comply with the directive standard by 1995.
