PRO RAIL 830/14 (GJCC Minutes)

 

19.12.1856 227. Read a letter dated 15th inst from Mr James Harrison who is desirous of putting a steam tug upon the Canals stating that the Coventry Canal Co had appointed a deputation to meet the Directors of the Midland Canal Co respecting the resolution of the latter company not to permit Steam Tugs to navigate the Ashby de la Zouch Canal and proposing that a deputation from the Grand Junction Co should join the Coventry Canal Cos deputation. Resolved that Mr Harrison be informed that the Committee do not consider the object of the Coventry Canal Co would be furthered by delegates attending the proposed meeting on behalf of the Company, but that the Company will give every facility to the Steam Tug passing over the Grand Junction Canal, provided it does not injure the works of the Canal and also that the Committee has every inclination to assist Mr Harrison in his efforts to accomplish the same on the Ashby de la Zouch Canal
