HC Deb 06 July 1928 vol 219 c1737W

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.
