§ Mr. McQuarrie
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list in the Official Report all nationalised industries, whether statutory corporations, companies, or trading bodies of any sort, in which the Government now have any financial interest or for which they may make financial provision, in whole or part, for which he is the sponsoring Minister; and if he will list all subsidiaries or divisions of those industries which may carry on business under a different name from that of the parent nationalised industry.
§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
I am responsible for the British Waterways Board and for the regional water authorities. The British Waterways Board's subsidiary companies are detailed in Appendix V Statement D of the board's annual report and accounts for 1982, (page 53). The nine regional water authorities have no subsidiary companies or divisions carrying on business under a different name from that of the authority concerned.
