§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
At the request of the local authorities concerned, a grant is being made from the Road Fund towards the cost of a preliminary engineering investigation into the possibility of constructing a road-bridge across the Forth at Rosyth. No expense has yet been incurred, but I hope that the borings will very shortly be begun.
