HC Deb 20 July 1955 vol 544 c51W
95. Mr. Body

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he is aware that there were 131 accidents on the A.12 road through Brentwood within the last twelve months; and whether he will approve the making of the Brentwood by-pass immediately.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I am afraid that my hon. Friend's figures do not square with mine, but I agree that there has been an increase in accidents on this road. I cannot authorise at present the making of a Brentwood by-pass, but I am considering whether there are any other steps I can take which would help traffic conditions.
