Mr. John D. Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what action he proposes to take to stop the regular flooding at Church lane, Donaghadee, near the old people's home.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
No buildings have been affected.
From initial investigations it appears that the flooding is associated with an old culverted millrace which runs through the area. The millrace is not designated within the terms of the Drainage (Northern Ireland) Order 1973. The Department of Agriculture is undertaking further investigations with a view to determining the nature and source of any drainage disability and the person(s) responsible for the millrace.
