HC Deb 10 July 1967 vol 750 c33W
Mr. Hooson

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take steps to see that all the river authorities in Wales furnish figures to show the bank miles in private hands for fishing purposes, the bank miles available via clubs, associations, etc., to the general public, and the names of each of the clubs and associations concerned, indicating the quality of the fishing in each case.

Mr. Hoy

No. I do not think that the practical value of this information is sufficient to justify the great labour and expense which its collection and analysis would entail for River Authorities.
