asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the timetable for initiation and completion of existing and future programmes for surface and foul water drainage schemes at Beckton within the London dockland designated area; and if he is satisfied with the progress of drainage schemes in this new housing area.

I am advised that the surface water sewerage scheme is under construction and on schedule for completion early next year, and that the foul sewerage scheme was provisionally due to start in April 1978 to phase in with the occupation of houses. I understand, however, that all the authorities concerned are meeting today to discuss this timetable. On present information I have no reason to be dissatisfied with progress.
