§ 86. Mr. E. L. Mallalieu
asked the Minister of Transport what conversations he has had with representatives of local authorities from the Humber area with a view to exploring the possibilities of hovercraft ferries across the river.
§ Mr. Marples
The only communication on this subject I have had from local authorities in the Humber area is a letter from the City Engineer, Kingston-upon-Hull, which mentioned the possible future use of hovercraft on ferry services and inquired about the facilities required by them. The City Engineer has been advised to consult Messrs. Hovercraft Development Ltd.
