HC Deb 07 June 1944 vol 400 c1363W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport if he is aware that any plans for trunk roads connecting the North-East coast which do not include the Tees district will create an unfair advantage to development areas North of the Tees; and if he will reconsider his plans and include the Tees as a whole as an integral part of the North-East coast.

Mr. Noel-Baker

My Noble Friend's proposals for the extension of the trunk road system include additional trunk roads in the area of the Tees, and I hope that when these proposals are presented to Parliament my hon. Friend will agree that they have met the point he has in mind.
