asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he has received the report of the Committee set up to consider the advisability, or otherwise, of the Severn Barrage, and, if not, when does he expect it; and whether this Committee are considering it in conjunction with the suggested bridge for which the Government has promised first priority.
As my right hon. and gallant Friend informed my hon. Friend the Member for Aylesbury (Sir S. Reed), on 24th October, the report has been received and arrangements are being made for it to be published as soon as possible. In the report the Committee recommend that proposals for a road and rail bridge should be considered independently.
