HC Deb 19 January 1978 vol 942 c333W
21. Mr. Jessel

asked the Minister of State for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he expects the construction of the London flood barrier to be completed.

Mr. Strang

The Greater London Council has recently reviewed the work programme for the barrier and now estimates that construction will not be completed before the latter part of 1982. I understand, however, that the barrier is expected to be operable several months before completion.
