§ 49. Mr. CAMPBELL
asked the Minister of Health what additional responsibilities, in respect of highways, will be transferred to the county authorities under the proposals outlined in the Budget statement?
§ Sir K. WOOD
It is intended, as part of the proposals outlined in the Budget statement, to transfer to the county councils the responsibility for the administration of all Class I and Class II roads outside London and the county boroughs, and of all roads in rural districts. In the case of Class I and Class II roads arrangements could still be made in appropriate oases for the carrying out of the actual work of maintenance by the councils of non-county boroughs or urban districts.
