HC Deb 17 February 1989 vol 147 cc404-5W
Mr. Michael

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list all those water supplies in Wales which currently fail to meet the standards set out in the EEC directives on the quality of drinking water and whether or not these are subject to derogations; how and when it is proposed for each of those water supplies to meet the standards laid down; and what is the estimated cost of complying with the standards in each case.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

For the supplies covered by derogations I refer the hon. Gentleman to the reply given on 3 February to the hon. Member for Gateshead, East (Ms. Quin).

The following table lists those supplies for which application has been made to the Commission under article 20 for a longer period in which to comply fully with the directive. For these supplies improvement programmes have been submitted which should mean that most of those sources will comply with the directive by 1992.
