HC Deb 16 June 1937 vol 325 cc384-5W
Lieut.-Commander Tufnell

asked the Minister of Transport what steps he proposes to take during the current year to provide a uniform surface for the main roads now under his control; and whether he proposes in due course to provide all these roads with a concrete surface?

Mr. Burgin

I am taking steps to ensure a surface of uniform non-skid quality, and, when reconstruction works are undertaken, to use the same type of construction on long stretches of road. As at present advised I do not propose to stipulate for concrete surfacing to the exclusion of all other types of surfacing.
