HC Deb 03 May 1926 vol 195 c32
69. Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND-TROYTE

asked the Minister of Transport if he will state the number of county councils and of district councils which have applied for grants under Circular No. 234 (Roads), the total mileage of roads for which assistance has been asked, and the total sum applied for?

Colonel ASHLEY

Already 40 county councils and 799 district councils have applied for grants under this Circular. The information sought in the latter part of the question is not available, and I trust that my hon. Friend will not press for the data which in my judgment would not justify the labour and cost of preparation.
