§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on his considerations as to whether to take steps for further printing of his Department's leaflet, "Good Irrigation—Make Every Drop Count", with particular reference to water extraction by companies from streams and rivers.
§ Mr. Curry
Discussions with the National Rivers Authority and other interests indicate that the early warning system and the good irrigation practice leaflet, which apply only to abstraction for spray irrigation, have been well received in East Anglia. We are now considering further printing of the leaflet.
