HC Deb 10 July 1928 vol 219 cc2049-50
55. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the present position of the Haifa harbour scheme; whether this work will be, as originally arranged, carried out, all or in part, by the Government or by contract; and when work on the harbour may be expected to commence?

Captain MARGESSON (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply to this question. It has been decided that the harbour shall be constructed by contract. My right hon. Friend understands that the particulars drawn up by the consulting engineers to enable tenders to be invited are now available. It is hoped that it will be possible for tenders to be submitted by the end of September.
