§ Mr. Wellbeloved
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government, if he will make a statement on his study of the feasibility of a Thames flood barrier.
§ Mr. MacColl
The consulting engineers, whose report was published earlier this year, have found that a retractable flood barrier for the Thames is feasibile. The report and its implications are being studied, but this is a complex and expensive project and it may be some time before conclusions can be announced.
