HC Deb 24 March 1943 vol 387 c1641W
Mr. Thorne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what amount of money has been paid over to the Treasury out of the Road Fund for the year 1942–43?

Sir K. Wood

I think my hon. Friend has overlooked the change made in 1936 under which the Road Fund has been fed, since 1st April, 1937, with such grants from voted moneys as it required for the purpose of meeting its expenditure. No question of the Fund paying over money to the Treasury arises under the arrangements then introduced.
