HC Deb 01 June 1938 vol 336 c2075W
Major Whiteley

asked the Minister of Transport whether, during the course of his journey on the London to Birmingham main road on the night of Friday, 20th May, he observed the dangerous character of the road, A5, between Loughton and Stony Stratford and through Loughton village; and when this state of affairs is likely to be remedied?

Mr. Burgin

The necessary preliminary arrangements, including the acquisition of the land required for the reconstruction and widening of the trunk road between Loughton and Stony Stratford, are proceeding and as soon as they have been completed the constructional works will be put in hand. A public inquiry has recently been held into my proposal to make an Order under the Trunk Roads Act in respect of a diversion at Loughton and the report of the inquiry is under consideration.
