§ Mr. Barry Jones
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will appoint a member from Wales to the British Waterways Board; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Moynihan
I have no plans at present to appoint a member for Wales. Future appointments will continue to be made in accordance with the statutory criteria in section 1(6) of the Transport Act 1962 and in the light of the board's particular needs at the time.
