HC Deb 29 January 1964 vol 688 cc50-1W
54. Mr. Steele

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will give approval for the construction of a bridge over the Clyde at Erskine.

Mr. Noble

I hope that, as notified in the White Paper on Central Scotland, it will be possible to start construction within the next five years. I have already agreed to the appointment of consulting engineers to prepare a preliminary report on possible designs; thereafter a provisional order will have to be promoted.
