HC Deb 11 December 1968 vol 775 cc159-60W
118. Sir J. Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, when making the order to increase tolls on the Forth Road Bridge, he will include a direction for the Forth Road Bridge Joint Board to include a scheme for season or reduced payments for the most frequent users of the bridge.

Mr. Ross

I have no power to give such a direction. The Joint Board, with my approval, may make compounding arrangements, but such arrangements should contain an element of advantage to the Board as well as to the other party.
