HC Deb 16 May 1990 vol 172 c423W
Mr. Evennett

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects the present inquiry on the proposed east London river crossing to be concluded.

Mr. Atkins

The public inquiries into certain design changes on this scheme do not start until 3 July. They are being held concurrently with an inquiry into planning applications for the further development of London City airport. I cannot speculate how long these concurrent inquiries will last.
