HC Deb 08 July 1909 vol 7 cc1533-4W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can state whether the proposed central road authority referred to in the Finance Bill is to be a Crown nominated Board or a popularly elected one; and when he proposes to bring it into existence?


I hope that a Bill embodying the proposals in connection with roads, which I laid before the House in my Budget speech, will shortly be introduced, but until this is done it would perhaps be premature to answer the question put by the hon. Member.
