HC Deb 20 June 1989 vol 155 c80W
Mr. McCusker

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will list in theOfficial Report those water power rights which have been acquired by the Government as a consequence of the activities of the drainage division of the Department of Agriculture, indicating how many have been wholly and how many partially acquired.

Mr. Viggers

In the course of drainage division activities the Government wholly acquired water rights on two occasions, once in the upper main drainage scheme and once in Broughshane flood protection scheme. In both cases the right was expunged by removal of a weir and infill of a millrace.
