HC Deb 09 December 1926 vol 200 c2292
68. Captain GARRO-JONES

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the Sutton by-pass road, which is constructed of diagonally laid strips of concrete, each of which is of a convex surface; whether he considers that this is a satisfactory form of construction; and, if not, if he will state the probable cost of relaying the road?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel Ashley)

I am aware of the form of construction adopted for the Sutton by-pass road, but am not prepared to formulate conclusions until the road has been subjected to a longer test under traffic.

Captain BRASS

Would my right hon. Friend accompany me on that road so as to see that the minimum speed which is comfortable is 50 miles an hour?

Colonel ASHLEY

I am not sure, owing to the experiences of my hon. and gallant Friend with the police.
