asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation which are the two bridges on the Lune-Shap road referred to on pages 6 and 9 of the Twelfth Report of the Royal Fine Art Commission for 1953; and when the work is to be put in hand.

These references relate to one proposed bridge only over the River Lune at Newby's Dub on the boundary between Westmorland and Yorkshire. The reference to Lancashire, on page 6 of the report, is a drafting error. The bridge is on the proposed line for the Carnforth-Shap motor road, for which I hope to publish a draft scheme shortly. I cannot say when the work will be put in hand.
