§ Mr. PYBUS
A grant of £32,996, being 85 per cent. of the cost (estimated at £38,819) of building a new bridge at Loftsome, including land and approach roads, was made to the Yorks East Riding County Council in February, 1931. In consequence, however, of unusual difficulties with the foundations, the revised cost is now £46,403, to which must be added £1,878 for administration expenses. The possibility of making a further grant towards this additional expenditure is receiving my consideration.
