§ Sir P. Agnew
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will now announce his decision on the application of the Severn River Board for grant aid for the Board's £40,000 scheme of further bank revetment.
§ Mr. Peart
Yes. This completes the work which can be carried out under the terms of a financial arrangement entered into in 1958 between the board and the navigation authority under the auspices of my Department, and I am informing the Severn River Authority that I am prepared to implement this arrangement by approving the current application for work costing £40,000.
