HC Deb 30 November 1955 vol 546 cc221-2W
118. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation, in view of his promise to reconsider the application from Birmingham interests for improved road facilities for the city on the grounds of trade expansion, if he will give an assurance that any additional grants which may be made available will be followed immediately by similar action in respect of the provision for the Tyne Tunnel.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

No, but I am well aware of the need for improved facilities for crossing the Tyne and will keep that need in mind when determining the future road programme.
