§ Mr. HURD
asked the Minister of Transport what is the mileage of classified and unclassified roads, respectively, in the County of Wiltshire which are held to be unfit for modern traffic; what is the estimated cost of making them fit; and what is the mileage of roads in the county which need to be widened or diverted, and the estimated cost?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
While I am prepared to render every possible assistance, within the limitations of the funds at my disposal, to highway authorities who desire to improve their roads, I hope my hon. Friend will agree that it is not practicable for the Ministry to undertake the detailed survey and examination of all the classified and unclassified roads in a county, and the preparation of estimates for their comprehensive modernisation.
