§ Mr. Michael Morris
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will review the composition of the Board of the Anglian Water Authority to take account of the recent growth in the population of Northampton shire.
§ Mr. Denis Howell
Under the Water Act 1973 non-metropolitan counties within the area of a water authority appoint one member irrespective of the size of the county. The Anglian Authority is already large, and, as on other water authorities, local authority members already form a majority.
