HC Deb 20 March 1929 vol 226 c1736W

asked the Minister of Transport the number and total value of proposals for road improvement that have been submitted to him during the present Parliament by local authorities; how many of these schemes have been postponed or rejected, respectively; and for what reasons?

Colonel ASHLEY

A statement embodying such details cannot be embodied in a reply to a Parliamentary question, but much information on the subject will be found in the Annual Reports on the Administration of the Road Fund. It should be observed that many schemes are submitted to my Department in a preliminary form, and come before me at successive stages of amendment as the result of further consideration and review.
