Colonel DAY

asked the Prime Minister what steps have been taken by the Government with a view to the generating of cheap electrical energy from the tides?

I have been asked to answer this question. In accordance with the recommendation of the Committee of Civil Research, certain preliminary investigations are now taking place with regard to the possibility of utilising the tidal power in the Severn Estuary.
