HC Deb 02 July 1930 vol 240 c1980W

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in considering any scheme for constructing a by-pass road to Selby, including the provision of a new bridge, he will take into consideration the cost of such an undertaking as compared with the cost of acquiring the toll-bridge and, if necessary, reconstructing it; and whether he is aware of the desire of the inhabitants of Selby that the bridge shall remain in its present position as the chief way of traffic across the Ouse?


I am aware of the relevant facts concerning Selby Bridge and will give consideration to the points referred to by the hon. Member in dealing with any proposals which may be put forward by the highway authorities concerned.
