HC Deb 30 October 1957 vol 575 c204
35. Captain Pilkington

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how the amount of work done on the roads in 1938 compares with that being done in 1957.

Mr. Watkinson

There is no ready yardstick to provide an exact comparison of "work done."

Captain Pilkington

Is my right hon. Friend satisfied with the position in view of the fact that the Road Research Board says that the present programme is not keeping pace with the increased traffic?

Mr. Watkinson

I am quite satisfied that I have a fair share for the roads in the country's capital investment programme.
