HC Deb 05 May 1967 vol 746 c127W
Mr. R. W. Elliott

asked the Minister of Transport what consideration she has given to the further representations made to her about the future of the River Tyne, following the proposals of the National Ports Council regarding the need to examine coastal sites suitable for development near population centres and adjoining deep water.

Mr. Swingler

We have not received any further representations on this subject, nor has my right hon. Friend's authorisation been sought for any major development on the Tyne.
