§ 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 222W 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.
