HC Deb 21 July 1949 vol 467 cc76-7W
62. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will recommend to local highway authorities that the policy of the City Corporation in repairing certain busy roads during weekend or other quiet periods should be adopted, with a view to alleviating traffic congestion caused when streets are under repair.

Mr. Callaghan

There is much to be said for the City practice, but the circumstances of other highway authorities are different from those of the City. My right hon. Friend is, however, reviewing the present practice with a view to reducing as much as possible the inconvenience caused on important traffic routes.
