HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 c228
36. Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will introduce legislation to permit the use of the Road Fund for the purpose of planting trees along the new arterial roads of the country, and to permit local authorities to spend money on tree-planting alongside the roads within their jurisdiction?


I informed the right hon. and gallant Member on the 13th May that I was seeking an opportunity to introduce a short Bill dealing with this and one or two other uncontroversial matters. I still have hopes that this may be possible even during the present Session.
