§ Mr. HURD
asked the Minister of Transport if he will issue a list of the tolls remaining on public highways; what annual revenue is derived from them; and what is the Ministry's estimate of the cost of freeing these tolls under the Roads Improvement Bill now before the House?
§ Lieut.-Colonel MOORE-BRABAZON
A complete tabular statement of tolls in2268W England and Wales is available for general inspection in my Department, but owing to its bulk the document is hardly suitable for circulation. I shall be happy to give the hon. Member facilities for consulting it. As the tolls are usually imposed 'by private undertakings, I have no information as to the annual revenue derived from them, nor can I form any estimate of the cost of freeing the tolls. Each case will need to be considered on its merits, as and when the local authorities avail themselves of the provisions of the Roads Improvement Bill now before the House.
