British Waterways: Parliamentary question on NWC funding

House of Commons, November 11th 2010

Andrea Leadsom South Northamptonshire, Conservative asked the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what consideration she has given to continuing her Department’s funding of British Waterways.

Richard Benyon Parliamentary Under Secretary of State Natural Environment and Fisheries, Environment, Food and Rural Affairs; Newbury, Conservative, replied:

The level of grant for British Waterways is currently being considered, following the outcome of the spending review. The reduction in British Waterways’ grant will not be any greater because British Waterways is becoming a charity than it would otherwise have been, as the Government wish to get the charity off to the best start that we can afford. The move to charity status will require a long-term contract for continued Government support.
