HC Deb 08 July 1996 vol 281 cc73-4W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to build an east London river crossing, and if he will make a statement. [35919]

Mr. Norris

In the transport strategy for London announced in April, the Government proposed a multi-modal local crossing between Beckton and Thamesmead at Gallions Reach as one potential element of a "package" of new crossing for East London. This proposal supersedes the old east London river crossing scheme, for which we propose to publish draft revocation orders as soon as possible.
