HC Deb 18 June 1959 vol 607 cc68-9W
Mr. Harold Davies

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will state the amount of the grants made under the Agriculture (Improvement of Roads) Act, 1955, to the local authorities serving the Leek Parliamentary Division, Staffordshire, and how many unclassified or unadopted roads have thereby been improved.

Mr. Hare

Improvements to rive unclassified roads in the Leek Parliamentary Division have been completed at a cost of £8,322 and grant amounting to £5,409 will be paid shortly. In addition to these, I have approved schemes concerning four unadopted roads at an estimated cost of £7,869 and one unclassified road at £3,247: these will attract grants of £5,902 and £2,110 respectively. The total grant commitment on schemes already approved is therefore £13,421. I have approved all the schemes submitted to me in respect of the area covered by the hon. Member's constituency.
