§ 71. Sir G. de Freitas
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will reconsider his water 221W resources plan and allow the British Waterways Board to continue.
§ Mr. Peyton
It is no longer appropriate that the canals should be administered as though they were a transport industry. Consultations are proceeding with the British Waterways Board as to the best form of management of the canals within the framework that responsibility passes to the regional water authorities.
