Rt Hon Lord Lilley

    Peter Lilley, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, secured a promise from the Environment Minister, Michael Meacher, to consider releasing tankers form the emergency services to supplement those provided by Thames Water and Herts County Council currently keeping floods at bay in Redbourn.

    Peter Lilley managed to bring up Redbourn?s problems in Parliament by ingeniously relating them to a question about ?improving water ways?.
