§ Sir C. RAWSON
asked the Minister of Transport how many miles of the 91 miles of the Class I road from Westminster Bridge to Brighton sea front, via the Croydon by-pass and Crawley route, are restricted; and what length of this restricted mileage has been built or widened with the assistance of advances from the Road Fund or from its predecessor, the Road Improvement Fund?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
Section of the London-Brighton road amounting to 24 miles are restricted and, of these, about 94 miles have been widened with assistance from the Road Fund. No part of this road was built or widened with assistance from the Road Improvement Fund. Various proposals for derestricting parts of the mileages mentioned are under the consideration of the local authorities concerned.
