§ 5. Colonel Gomme-Duncan
asked the Minister of Transport whether Sir Giles Scott, of London, was the only architect considered for the appointment of consultant for the Forth Road Bridge; and whether he is satisfied that there is no suitably qualified architect practising in Scotland available for this work.
§ Mr. Barnes
The selection of an architect as consultant for the Forth Road Bridge is a matter for the Forth Road 5 Bridge Joint Committee. I understand that a number of names were before the Committee.
