HC Deb 17 May 1928 vol 217 cc1203-4
48. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has now received the report of his chief road engineer, who recently examined the existing state of affairs on the roads leading from the new Booth-ferry Bridge to join up with the Liverpool-Hull trunk road if so, what is the nature of this report; and what action he is taking on it?

Colonel ASHLEY

The reports I have received go to show that certain improvements are desirable and that there is need for concerted action by the local authorities concerned for the purpose of forming satisfactory bridge-approaches, towards the cost of which I am prepared to give assistance from the Road Fund, as I stated in reply to the hon. and gallant Member's question on the 8th instant.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

If the right hon. Gentleman cannot promise that no work will be undertaken, will he make provision for suitable ambulance arrangements on the road, as the police themselves anticipate heavy accidents?
