HC Deb 09 February 1937 vol 320 c224
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?

Captain Hudson

I will see what we can do in the matter.
