HC Deb 12 February 1930 vol 235 cc445-6W

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in the matter of the proposed road-bridges across the Tay and Forth, he will now consider the advisability of his Department making investigation as to the advantages that Scotland would derive from the project in comparison with any less costly scheme suggested to so far meet the public requirements involved?


Before reaching a decision as to the merits of the various schemes which have been put forward, I shall have regard to the points raised by my hon. Friend. I have already urged that the conference which is shortly to be convened at Edinburgh shall consider the problem of the Forth crossing in its broadest aspects.
