§ 2. Mr. Rankin
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what reply he has received from the Dartford Tunnel Committee to his request to them to reconsider their decision not to surrender one of their shields.
§ Mr. Molson
The Committee has declined to change its view. My right hon. Friend will, therefore, authorise the construction of a new shield or shields as may be necessary so that the Glasgow tunnel will not be delayed on that account.
