HC Deb 18 October 1950 vol 478 cc2039-40
38. Mr. Peter Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what plans exist for connecting the Toledo district of British Honduras with the remainder of the Colony by road.

Mr. J. Griffiths

A proposal is under consideration, in connection with the Colony's long-term development plan, to build a road linking the Toledo district with the rest of the Colony.

Mr. Smithers

Can the Minister give a provisional date for beginning this work, as he will be aware that this district can only be reached by sea at the present time?

Mr. Griffiths

No, I could not. If the hon. Member will put a Question down I will do my best to find out when it is likely to begin.
