HC Deb 28 February 1980 vol 979 cc727-8W
Mr. Lawrence

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what now is delaying his consideration of the proposed second bridge across the Trent at Burtonon-Trent.

Mr. Fox

My right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport is still awaiting the submission of the necessary Highways Act orders from Staffordshire county council. It is still proposed to hold a joint inquiry into these orders, the planning application and the certificate for the public open space.
