§ Mr. LOUIS SMITH
asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the level crossings in Lincoln; whether, in view of the fact that the road work contemplated by the present Government embraces level cross- 1540W ings, he will consider assisting the replacement of the level crossings referred to by less dangerous alternatives; and whether, in the case of such crossings, he requires an application for assistance first to be put forward by the local authorities concerned?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
My attention has been called to the level crossings in Lincoln. I am prepared to consider applications for financial assistance towards well-considered schemes for the elimination of these level crossings, if put forward by the local authorities concerned.
