§ 60. Dame Irene Ward
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he is yet in a position to give final authority to the building of the Tyne Tunnel.
§ Mr. Watkinson
No. I am at present carefully considering the relative priorities of a number of very large schemes for early approval in the road programme, and the Tyne Tunnel is one of these. I shall announce my decision as soon as I can.
