HC Deb 09 December 1931 vol 260 c1851
37. Mr. NUNN

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the cheapness of rubber and the depression in the rubber industry, he will consider taking steps to encourage the use of rubber for road surfacing?


The choice of paving materials is primarily for the highway authority concerned, and I do not see my way to urge the use of rubber in preference to other materials which may be more economical and equally suitable.
