HC Deb 05 June 1956 vol 553 c50W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation, in view of the fact that the Kent County Council has unanimously approved the plans for a by-pass for Maidstone and one for the Medway towns, if he will state when the Maidstone by-pass will now be started and give an estimate as to when it will be available for general use.

Mr. Watkinson

I know the views of the Kent County Council but I must also consider the representations which have been made to me in favour of an alternative central road through the county. I will reach a decision on this difficult and important matter as soon as I can.
