HC Deb 21 June 1933 vol 279 cc774-5W

asked the Minister of Transport if he will decline to sanction any grants to the county highway authority responsible for the maintenance of the Margate-Canterbury road unless provision is made for the construction of adequate footpaths along this road?


It is the practice of my Department to require the provision of adequate footpaths, where this is desirable and practicable, in approving any scheme of improvement or new construction for a grant from the Road Fund. This practice will be followed in regard to all grant schemes for improving the Margate-Canterbury road.
