HC Deb 11 March 1964 vol 691 c59W
51. Mr. Awbery

asked the Minister of Transport what exploration has been made of the tidal currents of the Bristol Channel and of the effects the construction of the several proposed jetties will have upon the silting up of the fairways of the various ports and of the navigable parts of the main channel.

Mr. Marples

I assume the hon. Gentleman is referring to the jetty scheme proposed in the Welsh Shipping Agency Bill now before Parliament. It is for the promoters to satisfy Parliament that the proposed jetty will not have a harmful effect upon navigation in the Bristol Channel.
