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.
In answer to the first part of the Question I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to my hon. 60W 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.
