HC Deb 02 February 1938 vol 331 c225
35. Mr. A. Jenkins

asked the Minister of Transport whether, having received a deputation from each of the two groups for and against the construction of a bridge over the Severn River, he intends to make a statement in addition to the reply he made to each of the deputations; and, if so, when?

Mr. Burgin

Yes, Sir. I am at present considering the representations made to me by the promoters and the opponents of the proposed Severn Bridge. I will make a statement on this matter as soon as possible.

Mr. Jenkins

Can the right hon. Gentleman indicate when that statement may be expected?

Mr. Burgin

It is a matter of considerable importance, and it is a little difficult to prophesy as to time, but I am aware of the importance of the matter, and there will be no undue delay.

Mr. Mathers

Will a statement be made also on the subject of the proposed Forth road bridge?
