HC Deb 18 November 1931 vol 259 cc850-1W

asked the Minister of Transport if he can now make any further statement as to when the report of the committee on the Severn river barrage may be expected; and whether, in view of the possible benefits which might accrue from this scheme, he can give an assurance that the investigation is being conducted as expeditiously as possible?


I understand that the Committee of the Economic Advisory Council have encountered a large number of highly technical engineering problems in this inquiry, which is, however, being conducted as expeditiously as possible.
