HC Deb 08 April 1936 vol 310 cc2796-7W

asked the Minister of Transport whether h is aware of the continued inconvenience to the users of temporary bridge over the Towy at Carmarthen and of the loss to the town, and that all preliminaries have been settled for the building of the new bridge; and will he inquire into the cause for the delay in starting on the work of construction and say when the work on the bridge will be commenced?


I understand that the county council have been engaged in settling certain matters with the engineers and the contractor. So far as I am concerned, I have already agreed to make a grant towards this work, and I have also confirmed the Compulsory Purchase Order. I still hope that the work will be started by the middle of this month.
