§ Mr. CASSELS
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the bad condition of parts of the new arterial road from London to Dover; what is the cause of the present condition; and what steps it is proposed to take to make the road suitable for motor traffic during the next few months?
§ Mr. GOSLING
The surface of the new sections of this road is of a temporary nature, pending the consolidation of the foundations. Arrangements are being made for placing contracts for the permanent surfacing, and in the meantime the Kent County Council, with the assistance of my Department, are effecting repairs.
