HC Deb 10 November 1943 vol 393 cc1172-3W
Captain Strickland

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether, in consultation with the Minister of Town and Country Planning, any of the new roads or motorways extending from the London area to Birmingham, Nottingham, Grantham, Basingstoke, Winchester and Norwich, suggested by Sir Charles Bressey in his report on the Highway Development Survey, 1937, have been included in their national post-war plans?

Mr. Noel-Baker

My Noble Friend, in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Town and Country Planning, is now examining the proposals for road construction and improvement, made in Sir Charles Bressey's Report of 1937, in order to decide which of these proposals can advantageously be included in our post-war plans.
