HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 cc324-5W
Lieut.-Commander Hutchison

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in view of the necessity for providing safe and convenient means of transit for pedestrians, especially school children, between the districts of Carrick Knowe and Stenhouse in Edinburgh, he will now authorise Edinburgh Corporation to proceed with the erection of a footbridge across the main railway lines separating these two districts.

Mr. Woodburn

Owing to restrictions on capital expenditure it has not yet been possible to authorise the erection of the proposed footbridge, but the matter is receiving further consideration and I will communicate with the hon. and gallant Member about it.
