§ 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 1153 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.
§ 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.
§ Sir ROBERT THOMAS
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?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
No, strictly speaking, an hon. Member is not right in insisting upon asking a supplementary question after the next question has been called.
