§ 54. Major NATHAN
asked the Minister of Transport the position as regards the Charing Cross Scheme; and what steps he proposes to take in the matter?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
As the hon. and gallant Member is aware, the question of the promotion of a scheme for the construction of a new bridge at Charing Cross, is a matter which falls primarily to be dealt with by the London County Council as the bridge authority. I understand that the London County Council at their meeting yesterday, decided not to take any action with a view to recommitting the Charing Cross Bridge Bill, but to appoint a Committee representative of all the interests concerned. Until I have had an opportunity of fully considering the matter, I shall not be in a position to make any statement.
