HC Deb 12 January 1971 vol 809 c23W
Mr. Laurance Reed

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, whether, in view of the advances being made in ocean engineering, he will include a survey of potential uses of the Irish Sea and its resources in the terms of reference for his Department's study on the North West.

Mr. Graham Page

The terms of reference of the proposed study are still to be discussed with the local planning authorities and the Economic Planning Council. Put a survey of the Irish Sea would be quite beyond the scope of the Study for which we see an urgent need.
