HC Deb 18 December 1989 vol 164 c108W
51. Mr. Michael

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy whether he has reviewed the projected completion date for the Severn barrage in the light of his recent discussions regarding nuclear energy; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Morrison

Further work on the Severn barrage is continuing. This includes some site specific environmental work and a study of the organisation and financing issues for a barrage. Only when this work is complete will it be possible to review projected completion dates.
