§ 17. Mr. John Page
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what recent discussions have been held with bodies representing anglers about the proposals for the reorganisation of water services.
§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
I have had very useful meetings with the National Anglers' Council and the Anglers' Co-operative Association. As a result we have agreed to retain unchanged the common law right to seek damages. This has been warmly warmly welcomed by the anglers. I will send my hon. Friend copies of my recent correspondence with the ACA.
