§ Mr. Graham Page
The economic implications of alternative schemes for the Dee Estuary were evaluated in cost-benefit terms in the consultants' report published last year. My right hon. Friend and my right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State for Wales are studying that report, and all other aspects of this very complex proposal, and a statement will be made as soon as possible.
