HC Deb 01 May 1923 vol 163 c1219W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether he is aware that a private company is about to be formed with a view of constructing one or more great roads in this country exclusively for motor-vehicle traffic; that revenue is proposed to be raised by tolls based on mileage and tonnage traffic; and, if so, will he state the attitude of the Government towards such proposal?

Colonel ASHLEY

I have heard in general terms that some proposal of this nature is under consideration, but I have no details, and I am not in a position to express any opinion.
