HC Deb 01 March 1967 vol 742 c100W
79. Mr. Tilney

asked the Minister of Transport what proposals she is now considering to help facilitate the development of the Port of Liverpool for container traffic.

Mrs. Castle

I have just authorised the immediate provision of a deep-sea container berth by conversion of the Gladstone Graving Dock, and I am considering the proposals to provide a major new dock at Seaforth, at a cost of £33 million, which would include several container berths.
