§ 22. Mr. Brockway
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation to expedite the construction of the Slough by-pass, in view of the evidence presented by the British Road Federation, details of which have been sent to him, that traffic jams in the Bath Road seriously affect the productivity of firms in London and the West of England by increasing the cost of haulier transport.
§ Mr. Watkinson
I hope to publish a draft scheme for the proposed Maidenhead and Slough by-pass within the next few months, but I cannot say when constructional work will start.
