Mr. Win Griffiths

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Dewsbury (Mrs. Taylor) of 14 June,Official Report, column 416, he will list the number of people affected and the main population centres supplied with water from supplies subject to European Community derogations; and when he now expects the need for derogations will be removed.

Mr. Grist

Supplies subject to derogations are mainly in rural areas with most of the supply areas affected being situated in Gwynedd, north Dyfed and south Powys. Information concerning the numbers of people affected is not available. The need for most of the derogations should be removed by 1990 and all by 1995 at the latest.
