HC Deb 02 December 1931 vol 260 c1069
27. Mr. TRAIN

asked the Minister of Transport if he will give a list showing the details of the savings, amounting to £700,000, in the total estimated expenditure on bridge construction and road improvement work in Scotland?


Similar savings are being made in all parts of the country and the preparation of details of the character asked for involves considerable additional clerical work which I am anxious to avoid under existing conditions. The information is of course in the possession of every highway authority in so far as schemes in its own area are concerned. If, however, my hon. Friend has in mind any particular scheme in which he is interested, I shall be happy to supply him with any information in my possession.
