HC Deb 06 December 1937 vol 330 c34
80. Mr. Anstruther-Gray

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is in a position to take any action to bring the surface of the Glasgow—Edinburgh Road within the City of Glasgow boundary at Carntyne up to the same standard of safety as the rest of that road?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport (Captain Austin Hudson)

I am forwarding a copy of my hon. Friend's questions and of the replies to the Glasgow Corporation, and inviting their comments.

Mr. Anstruther-Gray

Is the hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that a portion of this road under the control of the Glasgow Corporation is far more dangerous than the portion which is under the control of the Ministry of Transport; and will he, therefore, do all he can to urge the corporation to bring their portion of the road up to the same standard of safety as the Ministry's portion, in view of the fact that more than one accident has occurred recently on that piece of road?

Captain Hudson

I have no doubt the corporation will see my hon. Friend's supplementary question.
