HC Deb 21 July 1924 vol 176 cc907-8W

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the length of the highway to the west of Rye, between that town and Winchelsea, which is repairable by the War Department or the military authorities acting under the War Department the amount of the tolls received, respectively, during the months of April, May and June last; the salaries chargeable against these receipts and the proportion of such tolls which is in fact reserved for and spent, upon the maintenance of the length of road under reference?


The answers to the first three parts of this question are respectively, 3,300 yards, £375 15s. 0½d., and 3s. 3d. As regards the last part of the question, the whole amount of the tolls, after deduction of salaries, is reserved for expenditure on the maintenance of the road, and I may add that one-third of the total length of the road has been remetalled during each of the last two years and the remainder is being done this year.
