HC Deb 20 April 1932 vol 264 c1460

asked the Minister of Transport the estimated total cost of the proposed trunk road from Hull to Liverpool, on which work has been suspended, in view of the reduction in expenditure on roads; and whether, in deciding on future policy to be followed in connection with this road, he will take into consideration the railway facilities which already exist between these two towns?


With my hon. Friend's permission, I will send him a statement so soon as it is available giving the estimated costs of the sections of this road which it was proposed to improve and of the work which is being deferred. The answer to the second part of the hon. Member's question is in the affirmative.
