HC Deb 01 March 1967 vol 742 cc97-8W
72. Mr. Driberg

asked the Minister of Transport if she is aware of the serious continuing traffic congestion in the neigh- bourhood of the London docks; and if she will endeavour to alleviate this by encouraging the transport of commercial goods, whenever possible, by river.

Mr. Swingler

The Greater London Council as traffic and highway authority does what it can to relieve, in a variety of ways, congestion in the neighbourhood of the docks; and the Freight Group of the Transport Co-ordinating Council are keeping in mind the potentialities of river transport.
