§ 74. Mr. T. Williams
asked the Minister of Transport whether the West Riding (Yorks) County Council have yet submitted any scheme to his Department for the widening and improvement of High Street, Mexborough; and, if so, has the scheme been approved and a substantial grant promised towards the cost?
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport (Captain Austin Hudson)
A scheme for widening this road has been included in the county council's five-year programme and scheduled for commencement in 1938–39, but the necessary details have not yet been received.
§ Mr. Williams
As this is one of the most congested shopping streets in Yorkshire, will the Minister use his influence with the county council to bring forward this scheme?
