§ Mr. Chorlton
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has yet issued orders relative to the closing of the Bury and Bolton canal, as requested by the London Midland and Scottish Railway 1398W Company; and whether any steps are being taken with relation to adjacent property or the question of water supply?
§ Mr. Burgin
No application has been made to me for a warrant and order authorising the abandonment of any portion of the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal. The second part of the question does not therefore arise.
