To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what action he proposes to take on the drinking water inspectorate's report into the pollution of South West Water's supply in South Devon in August 1995. [21693]

The drinking water inspectorate is still investigating this incident and will, as is usual in such cases, consider whether to recommend prosecution of the company for the offence of supplying water unfit for human consumption.
