HC Deb 02 March 1955 vol 537 cc286-7W
112. Mr. M. Lindsay

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what steps he is taking to expedite the preliminary procedure in regard to new road construction.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

The preliminary procedure in connection with new road construction is necessarily somewhat lengthy, since it incorporates adequate safeguards for the interests of those affected, but I will ensure that as far as practicable simultaneous action is taken on the various things to be done.
