asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been drawn to the distressing plight of flood victims at Allerton Byewater, Bentley Toll Bar and Selby and district; and whether he will take all necessary steps to ensure that pumping operations are energetically conducted where such action is still a matter of urgent necessity.
