HC Deb 22 June 1992 vol 210 cc96-7W
Mr. Cran

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to publish the report of the drinking water inspectorate's investigation into the outbreak of cryptosporidiosis in North Humberside; and if he will state the reasons for the present delay.

Mr. Maclean

This case has raised a number of new and complex issues, and necessarily continues to involve external advisers as well as the drinking water inspectorate. It is being taken forward as quickly as possible and I shall make a statement as soon as there is progress to report.
