HC Deb 25 May 1938 vol 336 c1227W
Mr. G. Hall

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will state the amount paid to the local authorities in Wales out of the Road Fund for road construction and repairs for each of the past five years?

Mr. Burgin

The ascertainment of the actual amounts paid to Welsh Authorities, including those in Monmouthshire, under grants from the Road Fund during each of the past five years would involve a considerable amount of labour, but the amounts of grants made to such authorities were as follow:

1933–34 856,922
1934–35 837,366
1935–36 1,201,421
1936–37 1,263,453
1937–38 1,071,717
