HC Deb 16 June 1925 vol 185 c270
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?

Colonel ASHLEY

No one will be more pleased than myself when the Bill goes through.
