§ 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 303W 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.
