§ Mr. Steen
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why he has not yet approved the draft River Avon estuary byelaws submitted to him in January 1982 extending the area of the river covered by the byelaws previously approved by his Department on 5 June 1980, to include the centre of the estuary.
§ Mr. Mellor
Further consideration brought to light a number of complications. A letter was sent to the council on 27 July indicating that, subject to the resolution of some points of detail, it would now be possible to give approval to the draft.
