HC Deb 10 April 1962 vol 657 c100W
55. Dr. D. Johnson

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs when he received the appeal of Mr. R. O. Bradbury, of 55 Criffel Road, Carlisle, against the bill of £383 he has received from the corporation of the city of Carlisle in respect of of road charges, following the statutory notice under the Public Health Act, 1875, which he received on 15th April, 1958, instructing him to make up a proportion of 352 yards of roadway at what has been subsequently estimated to be a cost of £118; when he will make his decision on this appeal; and whether he will take account of the fact that, not only is the sum demanded a much larger one than that accounted for by the notice, but also is in reference to a long stretch of side road of which Mr. Bradbury only has a minimal use.

Mr. Rippon

The appeal was received on 18th December last. A hearing is to be held on 11th May, and my right hon. Friend will make his decision as soon as possible after receiving the inspector's report. All the circumstances brought to his notice will be taken into account.
