HC Deb 30 October 1957 vol 575 c49W
25. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation why he has failed to keep the Jarrow-Howden Ferry in proper repair; why no arrangements were made to provide suitable alternative ferry transport while repairs were being carried out; and if he will give an undertaking that he will pay more attention to the needs of Tyneside in the field of communications in the future.

Mr. Nugent

This ferry is the joint responsibility of the Northumberland and Durham County Councils.
