§ 68. Mr. WHITELEY
asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the increase in traffic during recent months over Scotswood Bridge, Newcastle-upon-Tyne; whether he is aware that the bridge is unfit and inadequate to deal with such traffic and, in consequence, is becoming a source of danger to the public; and what steps he proposes to take to deal with the matter?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
I have no knowledge of the actual condition of the bridge. I understand that negotiations have taken place between the local authorities primarily concerned, though I have not been informed of their progress.
