HC Deb 04 February 1959 vol 599 c371
14. Mr. Moss

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what progress has been made in making up the service road, Watling Street, Grendon, in the County of Warwick.

Mr. Nugent

The frontagers are responsible for making up this service road, but the county surveyor has been asked, as a first step, to work out an estimate of the cost for them.

Mr. Moss

While I appreciate the difficulties, may I ask whether the hon. Gentleman is aware that the road is at present ankle-deep in mud and that residents are denied access to their houses?

Mr. Nugent

I know that conditions are bad there, but I am afraid that that is not my responsibility. The hon. Gentleman can only press the local authority to get the county surveyor to get things moving.
