Environment Agency Funding

EDM number 235 in 2006-07, proposed by Desmond Turner on 22/11/2006.

That this House notes the considerable boating activity that takes place on Environment Agency navigations and rivers which provides essential leisure and sporting benefits to people of all ages, backgrounds and economic levels; further notes the Government's social agenda and objectives on health, education and social inclusion; further notes that by encouraging and promoting boating activity on Environment Agency navigations the Government will go a long way towards meeting its published aim of increasing the number of people participating in healthy outdoor activity by one per cent. per year through to the year 2030; further notes that the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has cut the Environment Agency's budget by approximately £14.9 million in the 2006-07 financial year and the significant adverse effect this will have on the Environment Agency's ability to promote and maintain levels of participation in water-based sport and club-based activities on its navigations; and calls upon the Government to reinstate immediately funding for the Environment Agency to ensure that participation in water-based sport and recreation, particularly participation by young people, is not prejudiced but is increased on Environment Agency navigations.

This motion has been signed by a total of 48 MPs.
