HC Deb 26 January 1978 vol 942 cc743-4W
Mr. Hayhoe

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether any action can be taken in association with the Greater London Council to speed up work on the Thames Barrier.

Mr. Strang

The Greater London Council's programme for the barrier is already designed to achieve completion as quickly as possible. My Department and the Council regularly review progress to ensure that the work is completed at the earliest possible date.
