HC Deb 21 June 1939 vol 348 c2225
60. Mr. Kennedy

asked the Minister of Transport whether he can now state when the Bill relating to the construction of the Forth Road Bridge will be presented to Parliament?

Captain Wallace

I am not concerned in the preparation of the Bill to which the right hon. Gentleman refers, and I cannot therefore say when it is likely to be brought forward. As I informed the right hon. Gentleman on 17th May, the Government are unable in present circumstances to offer a contribution towards the cost of this bridge.
