§ Colonel CLIFTON BROWN
asked the Minister of Transport the cause of the 27W delay in improving the dangerous bends on the main road between Corbridge and Haltwhistle, in Northumberland; and if, in view of the lack of employment in this area, he will take steps to hasten on this work?
The proposals of the county council for the improvement of28W this road were recently brought to my notice. The scheme is a new one and the work is estimated to cost approximately £170,000. I regret that I feel bound to apply the very limited funds at my disposal in the first instance to the completion of works suspended in 1931.
