Administrative /‚Äč Biographical history

The Canal Joint Committee was formed during World War Two and was made up of one central committee and six regional committees. In 1942 independent canals considered to be important by the government were taken under the Committee's control, but they had been able to claim subsidies from the Joint Committee since 1939. The Canal Joint Committee also made recommendations about the policy for the inland waterways.
