§ Sir W. Darling
asked the Minister of War Transport if he will consider reducing the present high level of ferry charges on the Queensferry passage.
§ Mr. Barnes
The charges are within the statutory maxima but since the charges were increased in March, 1943, they have170W been considered in the light of financial results from time to time. A statement of the results for the first half of the current accounting year has just been received and I will communicate to the hon. Member the result of my further consideration of the charges.
