HC Deb 10 November 1954 vol 532 c1193
42. Mr. Odey

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he is now in a position to make a statement regarding the abolition of the toll on Selby Bridge.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

No, Sir. I cannot yet forecast when funds will be available for this purpose.

Mr. Odey

Is my right hon. Friend aware that until this toll is abolished and a new bridge built, nobody—not even my right hon. Friend—can regard the transport conditions in the East Riding of Yorkshire as being efficient?

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I am not disposed to quarrel with that, but my hon. Friend will be aware that I have to set the claims of this proposition against that of a good many others, including others in the East Riding.
