§ 105. Mr. Hall-Davis
asked the Minister of Transport if he will preserve the access now enjoyed by the public along the towpath of the Lancaster Canal between Tewitfield and Stainton in the event of the extinction of navigation rights proposed in the British Waterways Bill now before Parliament; and what cost additional to that of culverting would be incurred at the six crossings of the canal by the M.6 motorway.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
If Parliament approves the British Waterways Bill it is my intention to seek to preserve towpath access. At three points short diversions may be necessary at an estimated cost of £2,000.
