asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the delays in recent weeks resulting both from frequent closing and the obsolete size of the Lowestoft Swing Bridge, he will institute a survey to inform himself of the urgency of its replacement with a view to speedy action.

I have already informed the Lowestoft Borough Council that if it will arrange the necessary harbour works I am prepared to authorise the construction of a longer and wider bridge as it requested. I am awaiting its reply.
