HC Deb 25 April 1932 vol 265 cc36-7
82. Mr. POTTER

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in order to improve transport facilities, he will take steps to arrange for the purchase by the Lanca- shire County Council and other local authorities concerned of the Shard toll bridge and the early discontinuance of the tolls levied upon all persons using this bridge?


It is for the appropriate highway authority to initiate proposals of this kind which I would then carefully consider having due regard to the available resources of the Road Fund.
