HC Deb 14 June 1939 vol 348 c1331W
Mr. V. Adams

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the delays of the Hertfordshire and Middlesex County Councils in widening the Cambridge arterial road, he will take powers to include this important Northern exit among the trunk roads, and so himself assume direct responsibility for its widening?

Captain Wallace

I am unable to assent to my hon. Friend's suggestion that the county councils have been dilatory. Nor should I feel justified in asking Parliament to amend the Trunk Roads Act so as to constitute this road a trunk road for which I should then become the highway authority.
