§ Mr. COSTELLO
asked the Minister of Agriculture when the Report of the recent Ouse Drainage Inquiry will be published?
My right hon. Friend has received a preliminary report on this matter dealing with proposals for State assistance to the cost of the drainage scheme. On this he has made certain proposals, which are wider consideration by a committee appointed by the Drainage Board. The final report must await the result of these negotiations. Reports 229W of this nature are confidential and not published.
