Mr. Alan Lee Williams
asked the Minister of Transport, in view of the new developments at Tilbury Dock and the building of container berths, what applications for capital expenditure on a container depot for the south of England she has received from the Port of London Authority; and where the depot will be situated.
§ Mr. Swingler
No application has been submitted by the Authority for my right hon. Friend's consent to the provision of a depot for the handling of container traffic, but I understand that they are at present examining, in consultation with other interested parties, the future requirements for such a depot.
