HC Deb 09 June 1921 vol 142 c2083W

asked the Minister of Transport whether it has been decided to close down or reduce the amount of employment on the various schemes for arterial roads; and, if so, the reason for this decision, in view of the fact that these schemes are mainly relief works for the unemployed, the number of whom is increasing every day?


No instructions have been issued by the Ministry of Transport for either closing down or retarding any works of arterial road construction.
