§ 63. Mr. DOUGLAS HACKING
asked the Minister of Transport whether he can state the cause of the delay in proceeding with the scheme for the erection of a bridge over the railway at Hoghton, near Preston, and the construction of a new by-pass road in lieu of the existing level crossing?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
I understand that the necessary negotiations between the Lancashire County Council and the London Midland and Scottish Railway Company are not yet sufficiently advanced to enable a scheme to be prepared.
§ Mr. HACKING
Will the Minister do his best to expedite the erection of this bridge in view of the very dangerous level crossing?
