HC Deb 08 July 1880 vol 253 c1916

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether, in consequence of Her Majesty's Ministers having had no opportunity of explaining their views on the Motion of the hon. Member for Mid-Somerset as to the cost of Main Roads, he can state whether the Government intends to propose any measure on the subject for the relief of owners and occupiers?


The Government have no intention of proposing any measure with regard to main roads during the present Session; but a Committee has been appointed by the House of Lords to inquire into the whole subject of highways, and they hope to have the advantage of seeing the Report of that Committee before determining what further legislation is necessary.
