HC Deb 26 June 1939 vol 349 cc41-2W
Sir W. Edge

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will give an instance in which any foreign stone used for road-making has been imported by highway authorities within the last six months and state whether alternative British supplies were or were not available in each case?

Captain Wallace

No such instance has been brought to my notice during the last six months. It is one of the conditions of a grant from the Road Fund that all materials used shall, so far as practicable, be of United Kingdom origin.
