HC Deb 19 December 1967 vol 756 c350W
64.Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in the interest of more balanced regional industrial development, he will take steps to ensure that all charges for the construction and maintenance of expensive bridges and tunnels in development areas are financed by the Exchequer.

Mr. Diamond:

No. There are other, more direct, ways of giving assistance to development areas.
