§ Sir J. Langford-Holt
asked the Minister of Transport how much money was spent on roads in the Shrewsbury borough area and the Atcham rural district council area between July, 1945, and October, 1951; and what has been the expenditure since October, 1951.
§ Mr. Marples
The following is the information in respect of Shrewsbury borough:
Between July, 1945, and October, 1951—£260,481;
Since October, 1951—£1,860,202.
These figures have been obtained from the Borough Council.
I am unable to give the information for the Atcham rural district as records are not kept by the highway authority—the Salop County Council—in a form which distinguishes expenditure by rural districts.
