§ Mr. Jacques Arnold
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when the Government will revoke the line orders for the east London river crossing. 
§ Mr. Bowis
I am pleased to announced that the ELRC revocation order has now been made and is being prepared for publication on 26 March.
The ELRC orders have remained in place while alternatives for crossing the Thames between Beckton and Thamesmead were being considered in order that businesses and residents directly affected by the scheme could continue to benefit from the statutory compensation which accompanied the orders.
