HC Deb 23 July 1929 vol 230 cc1114-5W

asked the Minister of Transport if he is prepared to consider a scheme, now being discussed by the local authority concerned, of a better means of transportation across the Manchester Ship Canal at Barton, Eccles, with the view of including it in his schemes for dealing with the relief of unemployment?


I am prepared to consider any well considered scheme put forward by the local authority or the local authorities concerned; but until some concrete proposals are before me I cannot commit myself to any opinion in the matter.
