HC Deb 13 February 1871 vol 204 c167

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is his intention to introduce again the Bill for continuing Turnpike Trusts, of which the original Acts have expired; or to introduce any Bill having for its object the abolition of Turnpike Tolls?


, in reply, said, the usual Continuance Bill would, be introduced this Session. The Act passed last year would secure the extinction of a good many more turnpike trusts than usual; and, in order to facilitate the ultimate abolition of all turnpike tolls, it was the intention of the Government to introduce a Bill making the adoption of the Highway Act compulsory.
