HC Deb 22 June 1955 vol 542 c66W
23. Mr. Warbey

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what recommendations he has now received from the British Transport Commission in regard to the utilisation of canals and waterways; and what is the policy of Her Majesty's Government thereon.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I have received no specific proposals, but I understand that the Commission has already approved certain schemes for the improvement of particular waterways and that a further scheme is in course of preparation. On principle, I welcome such proposals.
