HC Deb 11 December 1945 vol 417 c363W
Mr. Callaghan

asked the Minister of War Transport if he will take powers, either by legislation or otherwise, to take over and free to all users toll roads which local authorities are not willing to take over.

Mr. Barnes

It is for the responsible highway authorities to take the appropriate action to free roads or bridges from tolls, under the powers at present available to them. I am prepared, however, to consider any applications for assistance by way of grant which they may place before me.
