HC Deb 13 April 1960 vol 621 cc137-8W
Commander Pursey

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (1) if he will state the headway under Full-bridge, Maldon, Essex, at the highest high water in the two periods 1st January and 29th-30th January, 1960, respectively; to what extent this information was obtained by observation at the bridge and by calculation, respectively; and who made such calculations;

(2) whether he will arrange for official observation to be kept at Fullbridge, Maldon, Essex, during the period 13th-15th April, to record the minimum headway at the highest high water.

Mr. Godber

I regret that I have no information about the headway under this bridge and that I am not in a position to arrange for the observations proposed. I would suggest that the hon. and gallant Member may wish to discuss these matters with the Essex River Board.
