HC Deb 04 July 1916 vol 83 c1371
57. Major CHAPPLE

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether our naval activities in the North Sea have demonstrated the advantages that would have resulted from a mid-Scotland canal connecting the Forth and Clyde; and whether he will secure from those best able to judge a report on the strategic value of such a canal?


I am afraid that this question cannot be discussed with advantage at the present time.
