HC Deb 08 March 1948 vol 448 cc110-1W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in consultation with the local authority, he will take immediate steps to re-open the roads, possibly on a new alignment, that have been closed to the public to their great inconvenience across the airfields of Grove, near Wantage, and Kingston Bagpuize, near Abingdon, Berks.

Mr. Barnes

It is my desire that those roads which are still closed should be reopened, or suitable alternatives provided, as soon as possible, and my divisional road engineer is discussing with the highway authority how best this can be done. The speed with which this work can be undertaken will depend on the resources that can be made available in the present economic situation.
