Tom Brake Takes Constituents' Complaints to the Top

January 28, 2004 12:00 AM

Tom Brake held a top level meeting in Parliament yesterday with Thames Water's Managing Director to press home constituents' complaints over sewage floods in Carshalton.

Flooding has repeatedly occurred in local residents' gardens after the failure of a local pumping station.

Tom Brake said,

"At long last I have secured Thames' agreement for a thorough investigation. Residents were no longer satisfied with Thames' assurances that each separate incident was a 'one-off'. What residents want now is a permanent solution with guarantees that this flooding will not re-occur."

Thames Water has set up a hydraulics study in the Carshalton area to identify whether flooding occurred as a result of a build-up of debris or a more serious infrastructure weakness. The study is likely to last six months.

Thames Water have said that their local managers will be keeping local residents informed about the study.

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
