HC Deb 06 July 1932 vol 268 cc441-2
55. Captain P. MACDONALD

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he intends to give consideration before the next Budget to the recommendation of the Committee on National Expenditure that the Road Fund should be abolished?


As my hon. and gallant Friend is no doubt aware, the whole question of Parliamentary control over road expenditure is the subject of recommendations in the recently issued reports of the Public Accounts and Estimates Committees. These reports are under careful consideration by the Government.
