HC Deb 14 December 1922 vol 159 cc3182-3W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the proposal put forward by certain Metropolitan borough councils for the widening of Wandsworth Bridge; and whether the Ministry has considered the relative urgency of that work as compared with the widening of Putney Bridge?

Lieut.-Colonel ASHLEY

This matter comes within the jurisdiction of the London County Council, who have, I understand, decided, after full consideration, that the widening of Putney Bridge Bridge should be given precedence to the widening of Wandsworth Bridge. I need hardly say that I attach importance to the considered opinion of the London County Council in such matters.
