HC Deb 18 July 1979 vol 970 cc747-8W
38. Mr. Thomas Cox

asked the Minister of Transport what plans he has to discuss with the Greater London Council and the Thames water authority the possible development of the River Thames as a passenger transport system.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

It is for the Greater London Council in the first instance to consider proposals for the use of the Thames for water-borne passenger transport. If any such proposals do seem to offer prospects of a viable and effective alternative to other forms of transport in London we shall be interested to hear of them.
