HC Deb 20 May 1957 vol 570 cc59-60W
43. Mr. Watkins

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will now permit county councils to proceed with works under the Agriculture (Improvement of Roads) Act, 1955; and whether he will indicate which county councils in Wales have already submitted schemes.

Mr. Amory:

In answer to the first part of the Question I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Conway (Mr. P. Thomas) on 11th March last. I shall be communicating very shortly with the authorities concerned regarding those of their proposals which I am ready to approve. In answer to the second part, all county councils responsible for highways in livestock rearing areas in Wales and Monmouth have put forward proposals.
