HC Deb 28 September 1939 vol 351 c1507W
Mr. A. Herbert

asked the Minister of Transport what steps are being taken to increase the number of piers and landing stages in the tidal reaches of the Thames, the need for which has been urged repeatedly during the present year and abundantly demonstrated since the war began?

Captain Wallace

I have approved for the purpose of grant under the Civil Defence Act the construction of a pontoon pier at Putney and a wood pile jetty at Holehaven. I understand that the Port of London Authority have already given instructions for the latter work to be put in hand.
