HC Deb 13 July 1932 vol 268 c1299W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he anticipates that any arrangement will be reached for the freeing of the toll bridge at Selby, on the Bradford-Hull road, by the end of the current year; what is the estimated total cost of the cheapest scheme for this purpose; and to what approximate extent it could be further reduced if tolls were taken by the local authorities for four years after purchase?


The Parliamentary Secretary of my Department is receiving a deputation from the local authorities concerned within the next fortnight, but there is no likelihood of a grant being forthcoming in the near future towards the cost of freeing the toll bridge, of which no official estimate has yet been submitted to me.
