HC Deb 03 July 1928 vol 219 cc1152-3
25. Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

asked the Minister of Transport if he will now consider the construction of the Immingham-Grimsby direct road, having in view the unemployment in the area and the length of the only available existing road?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel Ashley)

Although the construction of this road has been advocated on several occasions by the Grimsby Corporation, I am not aware that any definite scheme with estimates has ever been drawn up, and I have been no evidence that financial support would be forthcoming from the other local authorities affected. The initiation of such projects rests with the responsible highway authorities.


Sir Robert Thomas——

Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

Will the right hon. Gentleman give the matter his favourable consideration?

Colonel ASHLEY

I am prepared to consider the scheme, but favourable consideration will have to depend on the amount of money I have got.


On a point of Order, Mr. Speaker. You called Question No. 26. Is the hon. and gallant Member in order in persisting in asking a supplementary question after an hon. Member has put his question?


No, strictly speaking, an hon. Member is not right in insisting upon asking a supplementary question after the next question has been called.


Will you then call the hon. and gallant Member to order?


The hon. Member must realise that it is impossible to give satisfaction to everybody.
