§ 31. Mr. L. SMITH
asked the Minister of Transport whether it is his intention during the current year, to give any assistance towards reviving the scheme for a new modern bridge over or tunnel under the Humber; and if he can make any statement with regard to this matter?
It is for the highway authorities concerned to consider whether they desire to renew their efforts to obtain Parliamentary powers for this project, but, in the present financial circumstances, it is not possible for the Government to make a grant towards the cost.
§ Major CARVER
Is the Minister aware that the railway company which administers this ferry between Hull and Lincolnshire is about to build two new ferry steamers and also to improve the landing facilities on both sides, and will this not obviate the necessity for a bridge?
