§ Sir Hector Monro
[holding answer 17 June 1993]: For the making of byelaws to regulate the use of inland waters, section 121 of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982 requires a district or islands council to obtain, subject to certain conditions, the consent of every person having a proprietorial interest in or in relation to the waters. If district or islands councils represent to us that, in general terms, they are placed in real difficulty in meeting the statutory requirements for the byelaws they wish to make, then we shall be prepared to review the existing legislation.
