HC Deb 12 December 1977 vol 941 cc35-6W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Transport why in view of the Government's 10 per cent. guidelines and the fall in the inflationary spiral to single figures in 1978, he has agreed to increase the tolls on the Severn Bridge from 12p to 20p for cars and from 12p to 40p for lorries; and if, before implementing these increases, he will refer them to the Price Commission.

Mr. Horam

This is not a matter for the Price Commission. The proposed

decide at a later stage whether to take oral evidence.
