§ 96. Mr. ALBERY
asked the Minister of Transport with reference to the present temporary Waterloo Bridge, if he will state what period of service it was estimated at the time of construction could be safely expected?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Mr. Parkinson)
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which my right hon. Friend gave yesterday to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for Dart-ford (Mr. Mills), of which I am sending him a copy.
§ Mr. ALBERY
Can the hon. Gentleman say, with reference to that answer, what steps are to be taken to provide a safe crossing of the river pending the construction of the new bridge?
§ Mr. PARKINSON
As the hon. Member is aware, the whole matter is under consideration in view of the Charing Cross proposals.
