§ Mr. SHINWELL
asked the Minister of Transport the reason for the delay in constructing bridges on the Edinburgh-Glasgow road near the Broxburn district; and whether he will take steps to expedite the progress of the work?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
Negotiations with the railway company concerned have been protracted, but agreement is expected at an early date, and the work will then be put in hand. The bridge tenders are now under the consideration of the local authorities.
