HC Deb 16 June 1925 vol 185 c268

asked the Minister of Transport whether, having regard to the fact that the new Lambeith Bridge will be visible from the Terrace of this House, and also to the public desire that any new bridge constructed over the Thames shall be worthy of the capital city, he will invite the London County Council to furnish them with copies of the plans and design of the bridge and its approaches, to be placed in the Library of the House for the inspection of Members?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel W. Ashley)

The design of this bridge and its approaches has not yet, I understand, been worked out in detail, but the London County Council have been good enough to supply me with a copy of the architect's general drawing, which is hung in this year's Royal Academy Exhibition. I am arranging for it to be hung in the Tea Room to-day.
