HC Deb 22 June 1953 vol 516 cc1461-2
31. Mr. Snow

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will give personal attention to the local demand for a traffic roundabout at Muckley Corner, on A5, in Staffordshire, as demonstrated in the correspondence sent to him by the hon. Member for Lichfield and Tamworth.

Mr. Braithwaite

An improvement was carried out at this road junction some two years ago, and I do not think that the provision of a roundabout, which would involve extensive demolition of property, would be justified.

Mr. Snow

Is the Minister aware that he may be somewhat misinformed on the question of the demolition of this property, and will he not take into more serious consideration the recommendation of the local authority in question supported by its road safety committee?

Mr. Braithwaite

My information regarding the demolition of the property was that an hotel and garage were both involved, and that is a rather serious consideration.
