§ 62. Mr. GRAHAM WHITE
asked the Minister of Transport if in the construction of new, and the reconstruction of old, main roads he will, where possible, prescribe and elsewhere recommend the provision of adequate grass margins?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
I am anxious to encourage the provision of adequate grass margins along main roads in rural areas, and in other areas where such a course is practicable and desirable. My officers constantly bring this matter to the notice of highway authorities, and the cost of providing such margins is admitted as expenditure towards which grants are made from the Road Fund.
§ Colonel HOWARD-BURY
Is the hon. Member's Department responsible for the weeds which grow on these grass margins, the seeds from which are scattered all over the countryside?
