HC Deb 02 February 1938 vol 331 cc223-4
33. Mr. Mathers

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is in a position to make a statement regarding trunk-road development in Scotland generally and in the County of Linlithgow in particular; and whether in such development he will take into account the eventual erection of a road-bridge over the Forth at Queensfeny?

Mr. Burgin

A survey is being made of all trunk roads in Scotland in order to determine what works are necessary and the priority of their execution. The hon. Member may be assured that all relevant factors will be taken into consideration.

Mr. Mathers

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the alternative recently suggested in the County of Linlithgow that the trunk road should go by way of the coast, and is that one of the points which are under consideration?

Mr. Burgin

If it has been brought to my notice it is certainly one of the matters under consideration.
