§ Mr. P. Browne
asked the Minister of Transport if he will state the amount of special Exchequer contribution to the Devon County Council for improving alternative holiday routes in the years 1959, 1960 and 1961; and if he will give 73W estimates of such contribution for the next three years.
§ Mr. Marples
During the past three years grants totalling £73,000 have been given towards improvements made by the Devon County Council on the alternative holiday routes.
It is not possible to say how much will be contributed during the next three years since the classified road programme has not yet been settled except for major schemes.
