§ Mr. Greenway
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will commission a public inquiry into events surrounding the recent flooding of the River Derwent in North and East Yorkshire. 
§ Mr. Morley
In the light of a report I have received from the Environment Agency on the events surrounding the flooding, I am not persuaded that a public inquiry into this event is justified. I shall write to the hon. Member about the Agency's report.
