§ 63. Mr. C. Poole
asked the Minister of Transport if he will inquire into the dangerous state of the Queslett Road, Great Barr, Birmingham, and instruct the responsible local authorities to widen, 172W kerb and channel and light this road, impose a 30 m.p.h. speed restriction; and provide an adequate foot-path for pedestrians.
§ Mr. Barnes
These are matters primarily for the local and highway authorities and I have no power to give them instructions According to my information, the expenditure of labour and money which the improvements suggested would involve would not be justified in present circumstances.
