HC Deb 04 November 1959 vol 612 c46W
50. Mr. Fernyhough

asked the Minister of Transport when work on the Tyne Tunnel will commence.

63. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will introduce a Bill for providing a tunnel across the Tyne this Session.

Mr. Hay

I understand that the Northumberland and Durham County Councils intend to promote a new Bill in this Session. If this receives the approval of Parliament, the councils hope to start work on the tunnel late next year.
