HC Deb 12 December 1958 vol 597 c124W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Attorney-General whether he will introduce legislation to clarify responsibility for the removal of trees or bushes overhanging a highway when they are decayed and in danger of falling for this or any other reason, and for seeing that such removals are undertaken, and to define the perimeter of a road or highway in such circumstances.

The Attorney-General
