§ 36. Sir GEORGE PENNY
asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the number of road accidents recently reported, he will take steps to secure that all slippery roads shall be treated with an effective anti-skid surfacing?
§ The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Mr. Herbert Morrison)
My divisional engineers report that the method of surface treatment suggested in the circular issued by my Department to highway authorities in March, 1929, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy, is being generally followed and that there has been a noticeable decrease in the number of accidents attributable to slippery road surfaces.
§ Mr. MACQUISTEN
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there are practically no slippery roads in Scotland, because we know how to make roads?
