§ 58. Major CARVER
asked the Minister of Transport whether the proposed new bridge and by-pass at Selby which con-nects the main trunk road between the East and the West Riding will come under his recent decision of maintenance and improvement; and whether his Department will therefore bear the whole cost of the approved scheme or similar schemes?
§ The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Hore-Belisha)
I hope that pending the introduction of the Bill I may not be pressed to particularise the schemes of construction and improvement which will be involved.
§ Major CARVER
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this road is a main trunk road between Hull and Liverpool, and therefore, it should come in the category mentioned the other day?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
Nothing that I have said this afternoon in any way detracts from what I have said previously.
