§ 32. Sir ROBERT THOMAS
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has yet received an application from the local authorities concerned for the abolition of the toll-gate on the road from Cardiff to Barry?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
The suggested freeing of this toll-road has been the subject of discussion between officers of my De- 958 partment and representatives of the local authorities, but no definite application has been made to me.
§ Sir R. THOMAS
Having regard to the inconvenience to the commercial community and the indifference of the local authorities of the area, will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to ginger them up?
Captain ARTHUR EVANS
In view of the fact that the local authorities are very anxious to know the extent of their liabilities under this proposal, will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman say what percentage of the cost of acquisition will fall upon them?
