HC Deb 16 March 1953 vol 512 c161W
Mr. J. Taylor

asked the Minister of Transport if he has agreed to the consultation requested by the Forth Road Bridge Joint Board and the Scottish local authority associations; and if he will invite hon. Members representing constituencies in the Lothians and Fife to be present at this consultation.

Mr. Braithwaite

My right hon. Friend has agreed to this discussion and is inviting some representative hon. Members to be present. I must make it clear, however, that we see no prospect of authorising the construction of so expensive a bridge for some years.
