HC Deb 07 March 1963 vol 673 c73W
6. Mr. Elwyn Jones

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether, in view of the continuing danger that a high tide will over-top the flood defences in the Thames and cause damage and distress, he will put into effect at an early date the proposals to construct a Thames flood barrier.

Mr. Corfield

My right hon. Friend cannot reach a final decision on this matter until the consulting engineers have completed the further work mentioned in the reply to the hon. Member's Question on the 6th November, 1962.
