§ 95. Mr. Stainton
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government to which Minister Questions as to the safeguarding of the sailing amenities on rivers in England should be addressed.
§ Mr. Crossman
No one Minister is responsible. Sailing may be affected by water abstraction or by a river authority's proposals for minimum acceptable flow, with which I am concerned; by flood 327W prevention works, with which my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food is concerned; or by the byelaws of a navigation authority, requiring confirmation by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Education and Science has a general responsibility for matters concerning sport.
