HC Deb 01 March 1961 vol 635 c131W
54. Mr. Langford-Holt

asked the Minister of Transport why he has decided to spend public money on the removal of concrete and wire boundary fences for a distance of 3 feet along the length of the Aeksea road from Dovaston to Farm Hall, Kinnerley, Shropshire; and how much he estimates this expenditure will be.

Mr. Marples

These fences were put up during the war for security purposes 3 feet inside the boundary of the prewar county road. Now that the War Office depot has been closed the prewar size of the road is being restored at the request of the County Council and in accordance with the general undertaking to County Councils given in 1941. The estimated cost is £1,140.
