I cannot think of any circumstances in which my officials would be called upon to interpret the Water Resources Act 1963 in connection with applications for licences but I would be glad to look into this matter if the hon. Member will give me details. The issue of licences is a matter for river authorities and my right hon. Friend the Minister of Housing and Local Government.
