HC Deb 20 May 1953 vol 515 c149W
Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Transport how soon he expects to be in a position to reply to the hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme about the property of Messrs. F. H. Burgess, Limited, at the junction of Friars Street and Goose Street, Newcastle-under-Lyme, about which the hon. Member wrote to him on 28th February last.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

In a few days. I regret the delay, but this is a difficult case in which my Department have been trying patiently to arrive at a satisfactory settlement in the face of repeated failures to comply with provisions made for the protection of trunk road traffic and road safety. I am now making a new proposal which will, I hope, settle the matter.
