HC Deb 15 February 1927 vol 202 c744

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the proposal of the Great Western Railway Company to close the Kennet and Avon Canal, which will have the effect of stopping a large barge traffic, both of import and export trade, with Reading and district and the Port of London; and whether he will hold an inquiry into the matter?

Colonel ASHLEY

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave yesterday to Questions on this subject, of which I am sending him a copy.
