THERE’S quite a lot water around these days isn’t there, according to a committee of MPs.
A report has found that Britain gets a lot of rain and that we should probably start thinking about where we want to put it.
The report states: “Apparently this has been going on for while. Each year it rains – for ages. It now appears that some of this stuff ends up inside people’s houses.
“It would be too easy to blame internal rain water on Britain’s beleaguered door industry. Of course, too many of our doors are simply not good enough, but we need to ask ourselves ‘what else – if anything – can we do?’.”
The committee has now called for a complete overhaul of British door production and urged the government to buy 40 buckets.
Additional measures could also include fines for any river that rises more than six inches in 24 hours, ‘something involving canoes’ and ‘a test’.
Committee chairman, Sir Denys Finch-Hatton, said: “The door thing is probably worth a try but I suspect most of you are going to drown.”
