HC Deb 05 July 1939 vol 349 cc1331-2W
Sir A. Southby

asked the Minister of Transport whether directions have been issued for the guidance of the Roads Department directing them to avoid, as far as practicable, routes crossing commons and open spaces when selecting or approving the routes of new roads; and, if not, will he issue directions to that effect?

Captain Wallace

The Ministry are aware of the desirability of avoiding, so far as practicable, interference with commons and open spaces, and special attention is invariably given to this matter when routes for new roads are under consideration.
