§ Mr. A. T. DAVIES
asked the Minister of Transport whether it has been finally decided to construct a bridge from the south side of the Thames to a point on the north side opposite to St. Paul's 1970W Cathedral; and whether, when constructed, it will carry traffic and pedestrians from practically the same area as that now served by the recently rebuilt Southwark Bridge?
§ Mr. GOSLING
I believe that negotiations are still proceeding with regard to the construction of this bridge by the City Corporation. The site of the proposed bridge is about 300 yards west of Southwark Bridge, and owing to the better means of access from the north, it is expected that it would draw traffic from a larger area.
