asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the resolution, a copy of which has been sent to him, passed at a public meeting held at the Town Hall, Ilford, on Friday 16th March, 1951, supporting the representations which have been made by the Ilford Borough Council to him for the reconstruction of the bridge carrying Eastern Avenue over the railway at Newbury Park station and asking that the reconstruction of this bridge be carried out during the forthcoming financial year, he will reconsider his decision not to proceed with this scheme during 1951.
