HC Deb 12 November 1945 vol 415 c1745
54. Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Minister of Agriculture what he intends should be the future of the River Boards Bill; and what stage has been reached in the preparation of this Bill.

The Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Thomas Williams)

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for West Woolwich (Mr. Berry) on 22nd October.

Major Legge-Bourke

Will the Minister keep in mind that areas round the Wash are very seriously affected by any project such as is contained in the Bill, and will he see that the interests of those areas are not jeopardised?

Mr. Williams

I can assure the hon. and gallant Member that all relevant factors will be taken into account.
