42. Mr. Ray Powell

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what estimate he has made of the economic costs, both in Wales and in England, of the restrictions on traffic flows on the Severn bridge due to the repair works.

Mrs. Chalker

The effects on traffic of carrying out the repairs has been an important factor in the Department's evaluation of the alternative engineering options put forward by the consultants.
