§ 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.
