§ 11. Sir N. GRATTAN-DOYLE
asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that proposals are on foot by the Guildford Rural District Council for a 60-foot by-pass road through the Shere valley; that such proposals, if carried out, would ruin the amenities of this district, and would involve heavy cost to the taxpayer; that such proposals are opposed by the majority of the residents of the district; and, in view of the need for economy, will he withhold his sanction from this scheme?
§ Mr. PYBUS
I am aware of proposals for a new road which would have the effect of by-passing Shere. This is part of a town-planning scheme, and interested parties will have an opportunity of voicing their objections at a local inquiry by the Ministry of Health which will be held on the 13th October. The scheme is in a preliminary stage, and no application has been made to me for financial assistance.
§ Sir PATRICK FORD
Will the hon. Gentleman ask the Surrey County Council to take steps in this matter without further delay?
