HC Deb 17 March 1964 vol 691 c157W
51. Sir P. Agnew

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether, following his approval for grant aid of the final length of the initial scheme of revetment of the banks of the River Severn, which assures work until the early part of 1965, he is prepared to give his approval for grant aid to the further £40,000 scheme so that the work can be continued until the end of that year; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

The Severn River Board has not yet submitted the scheme for consideration for grant aid. If they do, my right hon. Friend will consider whether a grant can be made towards the cost.
