asked the Minister of Transport (1) what consideration he has given, in view of the possibility of the United Kingdom entering the Common Market, to the practicability of erecting a dam across the Channel which would serve both as a means of transport and as a source of electrical power;(2) if he will state the estimated cost of building a dam across the Channel which would serve both as a means of transport and as a source of electrical power.
