HC Deb 05 July 1939 vol 349 c1321W
Mr. W. R. Duckworth

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the large expenditure in connection with Civil Defence, he can state whether it has now been possible to arrange for economies to be effected by postponing some of the major road works referred to in the Ministry of Transport estimates, costing in the aggregate£110,000,000, and, if so, whether he can state which particular schemes it is proposed to postpone for this purpose?

Captain Wallace

In considering the road improvement schemes referred to in the Road Fund Estimates, due regard will continue to be paid to the degree of urgency attaching to them in relation to the other calls upon the national resources.
