HC Deb 06 May 1924 vol 173 cc214-5

asked the Minister of Transport when the Roads Advisory Committee was appointed; who are its members; how many meetings of the Committee have taken place; what subjects have been referred to the Committee for consideration; and whether the advice of the Committee has ever been acted upon by him?


The answer to the hon. Member's question is a long one, and, with his permission, I will circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the answer:

The Roads Advisory Committee was appointed on 19th December, 1919, and is constituted as follows:

Nine meetings of the Committee have been held. The Committee were consulted in connection with the classification of roads and the grants made thereunder. The annual financial statements of the Road Fund and the purposes to which moneys are to be allocated year by year are submitted for their consideration; and their views have been sought for the Minister's guidance on a number of other subjects connected with public roads and bridges.
