§ 61. Mr. Braine
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether the study into the feasibility of placing a protective barrier around the wreck of 10W the munitions ship "Richard Montgomery" in the Thames Estuary which was to have begun a year ago has now been completed; and with what result.
§ Mr. Anthony Grant
Not yet, but on the information already provided by the Hydraulics Research Station it is clear that the protection of the wreck by block-ships is not feasible. However other forms of barrier are still being studied.
