HC Deb 30 May 1921 vol 142 cc566-7
21. Sir O. THOMAS

asked the Minister of Transport whether it is still the intention of the London and North-Western Railway Company to proceed with the deepening of the Holyhead harbour; and, if so, in view of the exceptional unemployment in Anglesey, if he will urge that the work be expedited?


Negotiations are in progress for leasing certain properties at Holyhead to the company. It is hoped that these negotiations will be successfully concluded at an early date, and that it will be open to the company to apply for permission to introduce a late Bill for the necessary powers in the present Session. The dredging of the harbour would then be taken in hand.
