HC Deb 07 April 1952 vol 498 c177W
67. Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Transport if he will appoint a Departmental committee to investigate the adequacy of the roads or otherwise, the conditions created by the increasing speed, and volume of traffic, and the accidents on the roads.

Mr. Maclay

For the reason which I gave to the hon. Member on 24th March in reply to his Question about the appointment of a Royal Commission, I do not think it necessary to appoint a Departmental committee.
