§ Mr. David Davis
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress he has made with preparations for the forthcoming water share offers.

I have today placed in the Library the "Pathfinder" prospectus for the 10 water share offers which has been published today. It gives details of the forthcoming offers, apart from the price, share capital and related information. The share price will be announced on 22 November.
