§ 34. Captain BRASS
asked the Minister of Transport what sum of money is to be expended on resurfacing the new Great West Road so as to make it safer for motor traffic in wet weather?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
There is no question of resurfacing the new Great West Road, but merely of "gritting" the surface of the carriageway, an operation which is estimated to cost between £2,000 and £3,000.
§ Captain BRASS
Will my right hon. Friend consider the advisability of pressing forward the Roads Improvement Bill, so as to save this extra expense in experiments of that kind?
