PRESERVATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF INLAND WATERWAYS, 1972

Submitted by: Home Counties South Region

The National Council of Women in Conference assembled, urges Her Majesty’s Government to separate canals and rivers from the control of the proposed new Regional Water Authorities, whose main concern will be water supply and sewage disposal, and to set up an adequately financed single National Navigational Authority for the administration of Inland Waterways as an amenity for the public, and where possible for the carriage of freight.
