§ Mr. Craigen
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, what efforts his Department is making to encourage the implementation of proposals made by the Inland Waterways Amenity Advisory Council report on the Forth and Clyde Canal.
§ Mr. Denis Howell
The British Waterways Board is discussing the future of the Forth and Clyde Canal with the local authorities and other public authorities concerned. I regard continuing discussions at the local level as the right way to settle the various issues which arise.
