§ Mr. Skeffington
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has yet received a recommendation from the Dartford-Purfleet Tunnel Committee regarding the the scale of toll charges to be levied.
§ Mr. Marples
No. The Dartford Tunnel Act, 1957 requires the Kent and Essex County Councils to submit a schedule of tolls to me for confirmation between six and twelve months before the expected date of the opening of the tunnel to traffic. The necessary preparatory work is now being undertaken by the Dartford Tunnel Committee.
