HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 c239W
61. Mr. Will Owen

asked the Minister of Transport what action is being taken to modernise and deepen the channel of Blyth Harbour, Northumberland, to encourage trade development, now that Alcan Aluminium Smelter is developing in the area; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Bob Brown

This is, in the first place, a matter for the company and the harbour authority, though my right hon. Friend's authorisation would be required for any project costing over £½ million. No such proposal has so far been submitted to him.
