§ 35. Rear-Admiral Morgan-Giles
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations have been made to him concerning danger to traffic at the Sun Arch, Romsey, Hampshire; and what reply he has given.
§ The Under-Secretary of State for the Environment (Mr. Keith Speed)
The Mayor of Romsey has written to my right hon. Friend and I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a copy of my reply, which explains that it is for Hampshire County Council, as highway authority, to consider what additional safety measures may be needed.
§ Rear-Admiral Morgan-Giles
I am grateful to my hon. Friend for that reply. Does he realise that this is a new issue, in that some of these arches in rural districts are too low for container lorries to go underneath and that what happens occasionally is that a container clouts the bridge and falls on to passers-by? This is a big issue. Will my hon. Friend look into it?
