HC Deb 20 January 1965 vol 705 cc64-5W
53. Mr. Burden

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make an immediate grant of £100,000 towards the duplication of Rochester Bridge as soon as the Court of Wardens have received the authority of Parliament to proceed with the construction, provided the Wardens are prepared to advance any further sums required and which would be repaid by his Department at a later agreed date.

Mr. Tom Fraser

No. If the Court of Wardens received the authority of Parliament to build the new bridge, the contribution from public funds will consist in the provision of approach roads to it.
