§ 84. Mr. Watkins
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food the amount of grant he has made to each of the county councils in Wales in respect of unclassified and unadopted roads under the Agriculture (Improvement of Road) Act, 1955, and the mileage involved.
The table below sets out the required information. I regret that separate figures are not readily available for county councils as distinct from other highway authorities in the eligible counties. The bulk of the work is, of 9W course, being done by the county councils.
