To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many responses he has received following the consultation over the re-organisation of navigation authorities covering inland waterways; and if he will list the organisations responding and place copies of their responses in the Library.

The following 26 responses have been received as part of the review of the navigation functions of the British Waterways Board and the National Rivers Authority:

  • Amateur Rowing Association
  • Association of Waterway Cruising Clubs
  • Commercial Narrowboat Operators Association
  • Country Landowners Association
  • East Cambridgeshire District Council
  • English Nature
  • Neath Borough Council
  • Port of London Authority
  • River Wye Preservation Trust
  • Salmon and Trout Association
  • Severn Fisheries Council
  • Turner Marinas Ltd.
  • Welsh Anglers Council
  • Wye Salmon Fisheries Association
  • Association of District Councils
  • British Canoe Union Council of Welsh Districts
  • Driffield Land Owners and Occupiers Association
  • Inland Waterways Association
  • Mr. Stephen Peters
  • River Thames Society
  • Royal Yachting Association
  • Sedgemoor District Council

All further responses received will be taken into account. The accepted practice, where responses are made available, is to place a list of organisations responding in the Library of the House of Commons and place copies of the responses in the Department's library. When all the main responses have been received, we shall follow this for all responses where the respondent does not ask for the response to be kept in confidence.
