HC Deb 20 June 1961 vol 642 c1146
4. Mr. Woodburn

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland by what date he now expects the Forth Road Bridge and its approach roads to be completed.

Mr. Brooman-White

I have nothing to add to the reply which I gave to the right hon. Member on 15th November last.

Mr. Woodburn

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the congestion is already starting at the bridge? Is there any possibility that the dates may be anticipated by better progress in the work?

Mr. Brooman-White

I have seen speculation in the Press, but it would be rash to prophesy.
