SS Richard Montgomery

Volume 473: debated on Wednesday 12 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what (a) further research she has conducted and (b) representations she has received on the potential impact on the SS Richard Montgomery wreck of dredging the Thames Estuary for the Thames Gate Port shipping channel; and if she will make a statement. (190494)

It is anticipated that the Port of London Authority will be carrying out a dredge in the Thames Estuary for the development for the London Gateway Port channel later this year. The SS Richard Montgomery lies over two kilometres away from the edge of the channel and is, therefore, well outside the range of this project.
