§ Sir K. WOOD
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has received an application from the Metropolitan Borough Council of Woolwich or other body or person for financial assistance in respect of a high-level bridge at Woolwich; and, if so, what action, if any, has been taken?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The Royal Commission on Cross-River Traffic, for reasons which are set out in their Report, reached the conclusion that the scheme was not within the sphere of practical politics.
