§ 57. Mr. DUNCAN MILLAR
asked the Minister of Transport when it is expected that the preliminary survey work in connection with the proposed road-bridge over the Forth at Rosyth will be completed and that the scheme will be put into final shape for approval; the estimated number of men who would be employed on the construction of the bridge; and the approximate period of contruction?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Mr. Parkinson)
I anticipate that three months will be occupied in preliminary surveys and borings, and in the preparation of the engineer's report. Until that report is in the hands of my right hon. Friend I shall not be in a position to give the further particulars for which the hon. and learned Member asks.
