HC Deb 10 July 1924 vol 175 c2493W

asked the Minister of Transport if he will publish a White Paper giving information gathered from countries across the Channel dealing with roadside trees; and, in view of the public interest in this matter, whether he will consider the planting of trees along the new arterial roads?


I am strongly in favour of road-side tree planting, which is generally desired, and I do not consider it necessary to quote foreign countries in support. I am assured that the House generally will regard such a measure as non-controversial, and I propose to introduce a Bill at an early date.
