asked the Minister of Transport what improvements he proposes to make to the road between Otley and Burley in Wharfedale to prevent flooding; when the road works will commence; and when they are likely to be completed.

Proposals recently approved for the removal of the weir at Otley Mill will greatly reduce, and may eliminate, the risk of flooding. If it should still prove necessary to raise the trunk road above the new flood level, the work will be carried out next summer.
