HC Deb 26 June 1928 vol 219 c218
18. Mr. LOOKER

asked the Minister of Transport whether the construction of the terminal road bridge and approaches to the London to Tilbury arterial road will be put in hand this year.

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel Ashley)

It is very unlikely that the work will be begun this year.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, when a deputation visited his Department on this subject, some 18 months ago, a promise was given that this work would be put in hand at as early date, and when may we hope that that promise will be carried out?

Colonel ASHLEY

As my hon. Friend must realise, it is a matter of opinion when an early date materialises.


The deputation were promised that it would be done in the immediate future.


Is it affected by the raid on the Road Fund?
