§ 27. Mr. Harold Davies
asked the Minister of Transport what consultations have taken place between his department and the Staffordshire County Council regarding the limited use of the Manifold Valley Road for vehicular traffic; and when the road is now likely to be opened for this limited use.
§ Mr. Barnes
This matter has been thoroughly investigated in consultation with the Staffordshire County Council and I am satisfied that no relaxation of the restrictions on the use of this track is practicable without considerable road improvement works, the cost of which would not be justified by the traffic likely to use it.
