HC Deb 02 July 1958 vol 590 c99W
74. Mr. du Cann

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how many major and minor road improvement schemes, respectively, have been carried out in the county of Somerset during each of the last five years; and how many schemes it is anticipated will be carried out this year.

Mr. Watkinson

Major road improvements in Somerset authorised for the years 1953–54 to 1957–58 numbered 19, 55, 27, 26 and 14. The comparable figures for minor improvements are 72, 62, 140, 132 and 150 respectively. In the interests of keeping the programme flexible, I do not intend to announce anticipated schemes in advance.
