§ 85. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will enter into negotiations with the Surrey County Council and the Southern Railway Company with a view to bridging the level crossing at Sunningdale on the trunk road from London to Aldershot and Southampton, or building a new road which shall be free from this obstruction?
§ The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Herbert Morrison)
The responsibility for the initiation of a scheme for bridging this level crossing rests primarily on the Surrey County Council. I am drawing their attention to my hon. Friend's question, and I am prepared to give careful consideration to any proposal which the council may submit.
§ Captain WATERHOUSE
Will the hon. Member give us an assurance that any steel that is required will be of British origin?
§ Mr. MORRISON
I hardly think that question immediately arises. I have no indication yet that the county council are going to build a bridge.
