§ Dr. PHILLIPS
asked the Minister of Transport what schemes for road improvements, if any, have been submitted to his Department by the Borough Council of Sunderland since 1st June, 1929; and whether such schemes have been agreed to?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
Since 1st June, 1929, the Sunderland Corporation have submitted a programme of road improvement works proposed to be carried out during the next five years. The total estimated cost of these works is given as £78,250 and the Corporation have asked that grants may be provisionally allocated pending the submission of the necessary plans and estimates. The proposals have now been investigated, and I hope to give a decision very shortly on the application for a provisional indication of the grants.
