§ 21. Mr. Hopkin (for Mr. E. J. Williams)
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware of the serious state of the Ogmore River from Aberkenfig to its mouth; and what steps he proposes to take to clear the obstruction in the river bed and straighten its banks to abate the nuisance?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
The watercourse referred to forms part of the main river of the Mid-Glamorgan rivers catchment area, and responsibility for its maintenance as a land drainage channel rests with the catchment board for the area. I am bringing the hon. Member's question to the notice of the board.
