§ 61. Mr. GLOSSOP
asked the Minister of Transport if he is now in a position to make a statement regarding the resumption of work on the Sheffield-Penistone-Huddersfield by-pass which was begun in 1930 and abandoned in 1932?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Lieut.-Colonel Headlam)
This is one of a number of schemes, suspended as a result of the financial crisis, which are being kept under constant review in the hope that arrangements may be made, at no distant date, for the resumption of work, as and when funds permit.
§ Mr. GLOSSOP
Could not this matter be reviewed at an early date, in view of the fact that the town of Penistone is one of the few places in the country where there has not been a considerable reduction in unemployment, so that a resumption of this work would be greatly to the benefit of the unemployed people there?
§ Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM
All these matters are taken into consideration.
