§ 86. Sir A. LAMBERT WARD
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will suggest to local authorities that all milestones which have to be moved to allow of the widening of roads should be replaced 43 as near the original site as possible, as many of these old stones are of considerable interest?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
I share the desire of the hon. Member that old milestones removed in the course of road widening operations shall be replaced as near their original sites as possible. My experience is that local authorities usually adopt this course, and I do not think it necessary to address a formal communication to them on the subject.
§ Sir A. LAMBERT WARD
Is the hon. Member aware that that is not being done in all cases, and would not a suggestion from, him have the desired effect?
§ Mr. McSHANE
Can the hon. Member not place these stones where the First Commissioner's predecessor placed the gates?
