HC Deb 17 July 1929 vol 230 cc459-60W

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he is proposing, in connection with schemes for finding work of national importance for the unemployed, to take steps for the reconstruction of canal bridges in the neighbourhood of Wolverhampton and the Black Country generally?


I have been asked to reply. I am prepared to consider schemes for the reconstruction of canal bridges on important roads, which are not fitted to carry modern traffic, if the highway authorities concerned will submit their proposals in response to the recently issued circular (No. 296, Roads), which sets out the terms on which assistance can now be rendered from the Road Fund towards the cost of approved works of this nature.
