asked the Minister of Transport if he will publish a list of deep water quay projects which have a higher priority than the one proposed for Middlesbrough.

Priority in port works includes the restoration of war damage, the construction and improvement of transit sheds, warehouses, lock gates, and road and rail access to ports, as well as the maintenance of existing facilities. High priority is given to the following projects for the provision of new deep water quays, the first three of which are in progress: A deep water berth with shed at Matthews Quay, Aberdeen; deep water quays at Leith; an oil berth with lay-by berth at Lackenby, Teesport; an oil dock at Eastham, Manchester (subject to Parliamentary powers being obtained).
