asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether, in any legislative proposals for the abolition of the tied cottage system, he will provide for the contemporaneous abolition of planning restrictions on premises designed to restrict their occupation to agricultural workers.

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the number of units of tied or service accommodation provided by the regional water authorities and the number of quarters vacant at 31st March 1975.

This is a matter of management for the water authorities. I understand that the information is not readily available, but I will write to the hon. Member.
