HC Deb 30 March 1926 vol 193 c1834

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the dangerous state of the approach road to Roa Island, Barrow-in-Furness, running between Rampside and the island, which, due to a conflict between two interested parties as to which is responsible for its repair and upkeep, is a menace to the inhabitants of Roa Island and other people having to use the road; and will he take such steps as will ensure this road being put in a safe condition?

Colonel ASHLEY

I understand that in the opinion of the highway authority the road to which the hon. Member refers is not repairable by the public, and in these circumstances I appear to have no grounds of intervention. Should, however, the interested parties so desire, an officer of my Department would be instructed to enter into consultation with them.
