HC Deb 09 February 1926 vol 191 c882W
Brigadier-General BROOKE

asked the Minister of Transport the principle on which the extra £750,000 set aside by the Chancellor of the Exchequer for rural roads is to be allocated; and whether grants will be made on a county basis or according to priority of application?

Colonel ASHLEY

I hope shortly to issue a circular to the local authorities concerned with reference to the additional £750,000 set aside for rural roads and shall be happy then to supply a copy to my hon. and gallant Friend.
