HC Deb 12 February 1941 vol 368 c1344
23. Mr. Salt

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will take steps to keep the highways in sufficient repair to avoid such serious deterioration taking place as would hinder their utility and necessitate their reconstruction at a later date at heavy expenditure?

Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon

Yes, Sir. That is precisely my aim, and I am doing all I can to achieve it.

Mr. Salt

Will the Minister take steps to retain essential key-men for this important work?

Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon

I will do my best.
