HC Deb 30 July 1937 vol 326 cc3520-1W
Colonel Clifton Brown

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of his recent flight, he can make any statement as regards the prospect of resuming work on the Newcastle-Carlisle main road, especially as regards the Haltwhistle section?

Mr. Burgin

I am about to serve notice upon the Northumberland County Council of my intention to make an Order under Sub-section (3) of Section 1 of the Trunk Roads Act declaring that the route of the Haltwhistle by-pass shall be a trunk road.
