HC Deb 06 May 1966 vol 727 cc171-2W
Mr. Anderson

asked the Minister of Transport if she is aware of concern in South Wales and Monmouthshire lest travellers from that area be put in an unfavourable position relative to travellers from the south of the Bristol Channel at the time of the opening of the Severn Bridge; and will she ensure that equal facilities are available to those travelling to the ceremony from both sides of the channel.

Mr. Swingler

Arrangements for the opening of the Severn Bridge are now being worked out with the authorities and organisations concerned, and the question of guests from Wales and Monmouthshire travelling to the eastern side of the bridge is one of the points under consideration. I can assure my hon. Friend that the difficulties he mentions have not been overlooked.
