HC Deb 21 October 1987 vol 120 cc835-6W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish the principal responses he has received to his consultative paper on the proposed national rivers authority.

Mr. Moynihan

In the policy and consultation paper on the national rivers authority, we asked respondents to indicate whether they agreed that a copy of their response could be placed in the Library of the House. Responses are still being received. Where agreement has been given, we shall be publishing responses in this way in due course.
