To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what consultations he has had with Clwyd county council and Alyn and Deeside council concerning their objective of a new road crossing of the River Dee in Alyn and Deeside; what his estimate is of the earliest date when a new Dee road crossing may be started; and if he will make a statement.

I met a deputation of local authorities led by the hon. Gentleman the Member for Alyn and Deeside in February of this year. However, any proposals for a new road crossing of the Dee estuary is the responsibility of Clwyd county as the local highway authority. All matters concerning its preparation and timing are for it.
