HC Deb 19 September 1940 vol 365 c211W
Mr. Mort

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is now able to give the full reply, indicated in his letter of 10th July, to the hon. Member for Swansea, East, upon the possibility of making the bridge for dock workers and other authorised persons available at St. Thomas, Swansea?

Sir J. Reith

This has been considered by the military authorities, the port security officer and the railway company, who are all of the opinion that as the footbridge crosses the whole of the approach roads to the docks it should not be reopened. It is proposed to re-open the bridge when the war is over.
