65. Mr. Gresham Cooke
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what progress is being made with plans for the building of a movable barrier or permanent barrage as flood protection for London against surges from the North Sea on the River Thames, as proposed to him by the hon. Member for Twickenham on 11th April, 1968.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
The investigation being carried out by the Greater London Council—to which my right hon. Friend referred in his reply to the hon. Member of 20th February, 1968—has made good progress and a technical report on it has just been rendered.
