§ 24. Major OWEN
asked the Minister of Transport whether any grant has been 202 sanctioned by his Department for the erection of a bridge across the railway at Maesdu crossing, Llandudno; if so, what is the sum allotted for the purpose and what are the conditions upon which it is made; and when will he make arrangements for this work to be started?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
The construction of a bridge across the railway at Maesdu crossing, Llandudno, is part of a scheme for the making of a new road. A grant of 50 per cent. of the original estimated net cost of £25,117 was made in September, 1925, and I am sending the hon. Member a copy of the conditions upon which the grant was made. The works are now estimated to cost £29,657, based on the lowest tenders received, and the Conway Town Council has applied for an additional grant towards the extra cost. This application is under consideration.
§ Mr. GRIFFITHS
Has not the Minister of Transport a Welshman to tell him how to pronounce these names?
