§ Lieut.-Colonel HORLICK
asked the Minister of Transport whether an estimate has been prepared of the amount to be paid out of the Road Fund in conducting experiments in road construction under the powers of the Roads Improvement Bill; what amount it is proposed to spend annually on such purposes; arid whether the estimates of such expenditure will be submitted to Parliament?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
The need for experimental work will vary from time to time, and it is not possible to make an estimate of the annual expenditure, though the amounts will in any case be comparatively small. All expenditure from the Road Fund is subject to Treasury approval.
