To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent discussions his Department had on proposals to write off the debt on the Humber Bridge; and if he will make a statement. (256992)

Department for Transport officials met with the Humber Bridge Board to discuss the revision of the Humber Bridge debt interest rate which came into force on 19 June 2007. A copy of the new loan agreement was placed in the House Libraries at that time.

The revised debt interest rate covers the five year period from 1 April 2006 to 31 March 2011 at which time the debt interest rate will be reviewed.

There have been no further discussions about the Humber Bridge debt since June 2007.
