asked the Minister of Transport, with reference to the grant of 85 per cent. to the East Riding County Council for the erection of a new bridge at Loftsome, whether he was aware, when authorising the grant, that the Loftsome Toll Bridge Company will have the right to prosecute the owners of all public service vehicles using the new free bridge on the grounds that, since the latter is within one mile of the toll bridge, the owners of these vehicles will be infringing Section 43 of 43 Geo. III, cap. 49?

I am aware of the provisions of the Section of the Act to which the hon. Member refers. The matter has been discussed with the East Riding County Council, who are satisfied that in the erection of the new bridge they will be in no way interfering with the statutory rights of the company.
