HC Deb 09 February 1933 vol 274 c382W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will be prepared, as stated in the preamble of the Humber Bridge Bill, to make a grant of 75 per cent. of the net cost of the Humber Bridge scheme?


As I informed the House a year ago, in the altered financial circumstances it is not possible for the Government to make a grant to the cost of constructing this bridge.
