§ Mr. Thurnham
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he will reply to the letter dated 17 August from Mr. D. Whittaker of 30 Wilkinson road, Astley Bridge, Bolton, concerning the drainage of water from Sweetloves reservoir, Bolton; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Baldry
I regret to say that Mr. Whittaker's letter was not received. We have, however, obtained a copy of the letter from Bolton borough council to which he had also written. A reply was sent to him on 4 November 1993.
