asked the Minister of Transport the number of road improvement schemes approved by his Department since June, 1929, for the county of Somerset, with the names of the authorities and the cost of each scheme?


Since 1st June, 1929, my Department has approved, in the county of Somerset, 118 road improvement schemes estimated to cost £401,983, and in addition, five schemes estimated to cost £371,416 have been approved in principle. In view of the large number of schemes in question, I hope my hon. Friend will not press for information as to the name of the authority and the cost in each individual case.
