I am aware that drowning accidents do occur in Loch Lomond all too often and I welcome this opportunity to stress the need for caution by people bathing and boating there. My right hon. Friend has no direct powers but will now discuss the question of adequate warning notices with the county councils concerned.
I thank the hon. Gentleman for that reply, but can he tell me who is actually responsible and what action can be taken? Is it not possible to have some system to warn canoeists, boaters and others about unfavourable weather conditions?
