HC Deb 23 February 1920 vol 125 c1323W

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether the repairing of the public highways is being delayed by the inability of contractors to secure freight room for granite from the Channel Islands; and what steps are being taken to overcome this difficulty?


I have been asked to answer this question. The answer to the first part is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given on the 17th February by the Parliamentary Secretary to the Shipping Controller to the right hon. Member for Woolwich (Mr. W. Crooks).
