59. Mr. Watkins
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what progress is being made with the new trunk road from Hirwaun to Abergavenny; and when he will be able to announce a date for the start of operations.
§ The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation (Mr. G. R. H. Nugent)
The necessary preparatory work is in hand, and I hope that the Brynmawr— Abergavenny section will be authorised this year.
