29. Mr. Loughlin

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what have been the total receipts from the Severn Toll Bridge; how long it has been operating; and what has been the cost of maintenance.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

During the 4½ years of operation up to 31st March, 1971, toll receipts amounted to about £3.7 million and maintenance costs to about £200,000. Maintenance forms only a small part of the total operating costs.
