HC Deb 20 December 1963 vol 686 cc302-3W
Mr. Gower

asked the Minister of Transport if he will provide details of the total expenditure by his Department on road construction and improvement schemes in Wales during each of the last three years, including grants to local authorities; and what expenditure is planned during the next year.

Mr. Marples

Payments from central Government funds towards major improvements, in Wales and Monmouth shire for 1961–62 amounted to £3,309,447 and for 1962–63 to £6,503,355. Expenditure on maintenance and minor improvements in these years was £4,114,304 and £4,476,448. Comparable figures for expenditure on major improvements in 1963–64 and 1964–65 are likely to be of the order of £7.5 million and £10 million. Expenditure on maintenance and minor improvements during the current year is expected to be some £5,250,000. It is not yet possible to give a corresponding figure for 1964–65.
