HC Deb 23 November 1938 vol 341 c1787W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Transport whether the consultations between his Department and other Departments interested in the problems arising from the right of suppliers of water, gas and electricity to lay their mains under the public highways, have made any progress; and whether he has further considered the desirability of moving to set up a Joint Select Committee to examine the present state of the laws relating to this subject?

Mr. Burgin

Yes, Sir. I hope to take an early opportunity of moving for the appointment of a Joint Select Committee.
