§ Mr. Williamson
asked the Minister of War Transport if he is prepared to support the proposal for transport communication across the Humber estuary by bridge or tunnel; if he is aware of the report on the subject prepared by Messrs. Freeman, Fox and Partners, consulting engineers; and if he will consider making a main road from London via the East coast to link up with the proposed bridge or tunnel, and so improve the transport facilities of this part of the country.
§ Mr. Barnes
I have recently received a copy of the report to which my hon. Friend refers and it is under examination. While I shall, of course, be glad to consider any proposals which the responsible authorities may submit to me, I am not at present prepared to enter into any commitment on this subject.
