HC Deb 13 November 1969 vol 791 c129W
Mr. Ridley

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what plans he has for the housing with public access, of the records of the building of the canals when the Porchester Terrace Record Office is closed.

Miss Jennie Lee

The records of the building of the canals at present housed in the Porchester Road record office are inextricably linked with the railway records because of the close operational connection between the railways and canals. Any decision, therefore, regarding the railway records applies also to the canal records.
