HC Deb 19 January 1993 vol 217 c192W
Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what assessment has been made of the pollution caused from the spoil from the Nantewlaeth reclamation scheme discharging into the River Corring in the Aran valley following flooding.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

The National Rivers Authority undertook a visual assessment following the pollution incident which affected the Rivers Corrwg and Afan on 30 November 1992. This found siltation of the river gravels and a corresponding smothering of fish spawning reeds. A survey of the effect of this incident on fish populations will be undertaken by the authority later this year.
