asked the Minister of Transport whether he will take immediate steps to provide a footbridge over the River Stour at Canford, Dorset, parallel to the bridge on the main road, since at the moment the narrow hump-back bridge has no footpath on the hump and carries a large amount of traffic.

The Dorset County Council are the highway authority for this road. They have not submitted to me any scheme for the improvement of the bridge. If they do so I shall be happy to consider whether grant can be given.
