HC Deb 26 January 1948 vol 446 c91W
101. Mr. Harold Davies

asked the Minister of Transport if he is prepared to allow farmers, veterinary surgeons and food deliverers to use their motor cars on the Manifold Valley Road, in view of the fact that the closure of this road hinders food production and distribution in the area.

Mr. Barnes

No. To make the road suitable for use by motorcars would entail a greater expenditure of money and call on labour and materials than can be justified.
