HC Deb 06 August 1924 vol 176 cc2948-9W

asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the number of men unemployed in Mountain Ash and Aberdare, he will make representations to the Glamorgan County Council to pro- ceed as speedily as possible with the making of the new road between Abercynon and Aberdare, so that work may be found during the coming winter?


Now that the Aberdare Canal Bilk has received the Royal Assent, I understand that the Glamorgan County Council propose to proceed at once with the preparation of plans and estimates for the construction of this new road. Directly these papers have been submitted to my Department, the proposal will be carefully examined with a view to deciding the extent of the assistance that can be offered to the scheme from the Road Fund.
