Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the delays which are involved under existing procedure in entering upon and acquiring land for road improvements; and whether he proposes to take any action in the near future to improve the situation in this respect.

Mr. Barnes

I am well aware of tae time taken to obtain entry upon and to acquire land for road improvements, but I would remind my hon. Friend that etc procedure followed is That which Parliament has prescribed. The new procedures authorised by the Acquisition of Land (Authorisation Procedure) Act, 1946, will reduce delays in urgent cases.
