§ Mr. Thorne
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will consider waiving the toll charges at estuarial crossings during those holiday weekends when motorists can expect to experience frustrating delays.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
The Severn bridge is the only estuarial crossing for which the Secretary of State is directly empowered to levy tolls. There are no plans to waive these at peak times.
