HC Deb 09 February 1955 vol 536 c1890
28. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation to what extent increased grants for road improvement and development in Leicestershire will be available under the expanded road programme.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I have recently asked all highway authorities for their proposals in respect of classified roads. I can make no statement on the allocation of grants until I have received and studied such proposals as they may wish to let me have.

Mr. Janner

Will the right hon. Gentleman say within what period he expects to be able to deal with a question of this nature?

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I do not know what the hon. Member means by "a question of this nature." I have asked for applications from highway authorities, and I shall deal with them when I have them in.
