asked the Minister of Aviation if he has studied the plans for the proposed new fly-over bridge on trunk road A.27 over the River Adur at Shoreham-by-Sea; how this bridge will affect the use of Shoreham Airport; and if he will consult with the Minister of Transport, with a view to ensuring that the bridge will be sited sufficiently far to the north of the existing toll bridge so as to present no danger to aircraft approaching the airfield from a north-easterly direction.

My right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport is aware of our concern at the serious effect on the use of Shoreham aerodrome of building the bridge on the line that was tentatively suggested last year. We await my right hon. Friend's amended proposals.
