§ 24. Viscount CURZON
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the state of unemployment, any efforts are being made by the Government Departments concerned to deal with the question of railway level crossings over main arterial roads, with a view to doing away with them wherever possible?
§ The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Gosling)
I have been asked to reply. I recognise that such crossings are a hindrance to traffic, and, on that ground, am anxious to get them abolished wherever possible. Schemes for this purpose are eligible for grants from the Road Fund or, at present, from the Unemployment Grants Committee. Assistance has been given in many cases.
§ Viscount CURZON
Has assistance been given in certain cases, and will the hon. Gentleman tell me whether any amount of work has resulted from such assistance?
§ Mr. GOSLING
Beyond what I have said? If the Noble Lord has any particular case in mind, and will bring it before me I shall look into it.
