We present the third instalment of a series of catalogues presenting 12.2-GHz methanol maser observations made towards each of the 6.7-GHz methanol masers detected in the Methanol Multibeam (MMB) Survey. The current portion of the catalogue includes the Galactic longitude region 10◦ to 20◦, where we detect 47 12.2-GHz methanol masers towards 99 6.7-GHz targets. We compare the occurrence of 12.2-GHz methanol masers with water maser emission, for which all 6.7-GHz methanol masers in the 6◦ to 20◦ longitude range have now been searched. We suggest that the water masers follow a more complicated evolutionary scenario than has been found for the methanol andOHmasers, likely due to their different pumping mechanisms. Comparisons of the 6.7-GHz methanol to OH maser peak flux density ratio and the luminosity of the associated 12.2-GHz sources suggests that the 12.2-GHz maser luminosity begins to decline around the time that an OH maser becomes detectable.
