§ 28. Mr. J. Harrison
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what schemes for road improvements he intends to sanction, or has already recently sanctioned, for the counties of Nottingham and Derby.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
With the hon. Member's permission I will circulate in the Official Report a list of schemes in these counties which have been sanctioned 371 or committed since 1st April, 1954. As regards the future I cannot at present add to my statement of 2nd February.
§ Mr. Harrison
Is the Minister aware that a considerable number of existing roads are in a very bad state of repair and require a good deal of alteration? I am thinking particularly of the A.6 road, which is his responsibility, where an old Bailey bridge takes a single line of traffic over the river.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
I shall, of course, look at each of these schemes as it is put forward, but, for the reasons which I gave in my statement on 2nd February, I cannot go further in announcing authorisations at this stage.
