§ 26. Sir PARK GOFF
asked the Minister of Transport whether, owing to the fact that the Tees Conservancy have 1592 now decided that an increase of dock accommodation is necessary, he has had any further communication with them with regard to the large natural basin of 604 acres at the mouth of the Tees?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
I have had no recent communication with the Tees Conservancy Commission on this subject, but I will inquire into the present position and inform my hon. Friend of the result in due course.
§ Sir P. GOFF
Is my right hon. and gallant Friend aware that this scheme would give employment to thousands in that distressed area over a long period of years?
