HC Deb 21 April 1999 vol 329 c593W
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. [80270]

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.
