To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what assessment he has made of the implications for his policies of the letter to the Minister for the Northern Powerhouse and Local Growth from the Metro Mayor Liverpool, dated 4 December 2017, on tolls on the Mersey Tunnel.

The letter from the Metro Mayor of Liverpool City Region made no reference to the tolling of the Mersey Tunnels which is the responsibility of the Liverpool Metro Mayor.

The Hon Member for Denton and Reddish may be mistaking the Mersey Tunnels for the Mersey Gateway Bridge, about 18 miles miles away and running over (rather than under) the Mersey. I’m sure his colleague, the Mayor, would be happy to show the differences, which he will notice almost immediately.
