HC Deb 10 December 1945 vol 417 cc169-70W
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 have 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.
