§ Mr. Butler
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if, during the reconstruction of the Thelwall viaduct on the M6, he will conduct negotiations with the Manchester Ship Canal Company to suspend the tolls on the Warburton toll bridge.
§ Mr. Atkins
No. We expect to keep three lanes open in each direction on the M6 during construction of the new viaduct and the reconstruction of the existing structure.
