HC Deb 19 February 1929 vol 225 c938
21. Sir R. THOMAS

asked the Minister of Transport how many toll gates and bridge tolls he proposes to abolish or reduce during 1929; and where they are situated?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel Ashley)

Various schemes are before me for the acquisition and freeing of toll bridges by local authorities, with whom it rests to initiate proposals of this sort. I hope to be able to assist some such cases from the Road Fund during the coming year, but having regard to the uncertainty as to the result of the negotiations with the owners of the bridges I am not in a position to give fuller particulars.
