§ 68. Major CARVER
asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the fact that it is only possible for grants to be made under the Roads Improvement Act towards the maintenance of grass margins alongside roads if their use as comprising part of the highway is not forbidden to any person entitled thereto, he can state whether he will henceforward discontinue grants towards such expenditure if the margins in question are banned by the highway authority to riders and drivers of livestock?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Captain Austin Hudson)
I am advised that Section 8 (1) of the Development and Road Improvement Funds Act, 1909, and Section 2 of the Roads Improvement Act, 1925, do not impose the restriction suggested by my hon. and gallant Friend.
