§ 34. Mr. Michael Marshall
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his Department's estimate of the number of domestic households that are still not linked to main drainage systems.
§ Mr. John Silkin
As my right hon. Friend the Minister of State said in answer to the hon. Member for Maidstone (Mr. Wells) on 7th April—[Vol. 909, c. 410–411]—the water authorities estimate366W the Denton relief road section can be announced fairly shortly. On the M63, I have nothing to add to the reply given to my hon. Friend on 7th April.—[Vol. 909, c. 162.] With regard to the various other major trunk road proposals in Greater Manchester, the information is: that about 900,000 domestic properties in England and Wales are not connected to main sewers.
