HC Deb 17 April 1980 vol 982 c689W
Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will seek to strengthen the public's representation on water authorities so that they become more responsive to the public's needs.

Mr. Fox

A majority of the members of every water authority is appointed by local authorities, and the proportion was increased only last year. I have no proposals to increase it further.
