HC Deb 07 November 1979 vol 973 cc201-2W
54. Mr. Thornton

asked the Minister of Transport what plans he has to increase the amount of freight to be transported by water.

Mr. Fowler

I am keen that we should do all we can to increase trade between our estuarial waterways and the internal waterways of Europe. I referred to this matter in my address to the Chartered Institute of Transport yesterday.
