§ Mr. Morley
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received on the British Waterways Bill.
§ Mr. Baldry
Since this Private Bill was deposited on 27 November last year, 56 letters have been received, most of which are of a circular nature. The representations largely concern the proposals for dealing with the control 55W of moorings and craft construction standards. Since the Bill's provisions are matters for the British Waterways Board, correspondents have been advised to pursue their concerns directly with them or through the appropriate Private Bill Office.
