HC Deb 12 June 1928 vol 218 c799
29. Sir R. THOMAS

asked the Minister of Transport what income the Conway Bridge Commissioners have received from tolls each year since 1920?

Colonel ASHLEY

As the reply to this question contains a number of figures, I propose, with the hon. Member's permission, to circulate the desired information, so far as it is available, in the OFFICAL REPORT.


Will the right hon. Gentleman also supply information as to the purpose for which this money has been used?

Colonel ASHLEY

Perhaps the hon. Baronet will communicate with me privately as to the specific information that he desires.

Following is the information:

According to the Bridge Revenue Accounts of the borough of Conway, the amounts of tolls collected by the Conway Bridge Commissioners were as follow:

Year. £
1921–1922 5,047
1922–1923 5,795
1923–1924 6,884
1924–1925 7,556
1925–1926 8,570

Copies of the accounts for the years 1920–1921, 1926–1927 and 1927–1928 are not in my possession.
