The All Party Parliamentary Group for the Waterways was reconstituted for the new Parliament on 25th February 2020.
The Group's mission statement is “To consider matters relating to navigable (and formerly navigable) rivers, canals, estuaries and lakes in the UK; including the potential social, economic and cultural impact of the regeneration of those waterways and extension of the system.”
The Secretariat for the Group is provided by Policy Connect working on behalf of The Inland Waterways Association.
All enquiries should be made through Alison Smedley, IWA Campaigns & Public Affairs Manager (contactable by email using firstname.lastname@example.org).
