HC Deb 03 November 1908 vol 195 cc964-5
MR. MACCAW (Down, W.)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he can give any reason for the delay in sanctioning the construction of the proposed bridge over the Lower Ganges at Sara Ghât, and when this sanction may be expected to be given.


There has been much doubt as to the best site for the Lower Ganges bridge, which required careful investigation. It has recently been decided to adopt a site at, or near, Sara Ghât, and the Secretary of State does not anticipate that there will be any delay in commencing operations.
