HC Deb 08 December 1925 vol 189 cc302-3W

asked the Minister of Transport whether any portion of the Road Fund is allocated for research in the construction of roads; if so, where this research is conducted; and whether the results obtained are made public?

Colonel ASHLEY

Authority for expenditure from the Head Fund on research work was only conferred by the Roads Improvement Act of last Session. No allocation of moneys for the purpose has yet been made, but I am considering what steps can usefully be taken.
