§ Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Transport why the Dagenham canal scheme is not being proceeded with; will he consider the possibility of industrial development by the utilisation of the Dagenham canal reaching from the Thames to Dagenham; and whether he will consider legislation to extend the canal to Romford in order to assist in cheapening transport?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
Apart from what is stated by the hon. Member in his question, I have no information in regard to the scheme to which he refers.
