HC Deb 24 July 1964 vol 699 cc166-7W
Mr. Ridley

asked the Minister of Transport what was the expenditure on new roads and major improvements in the County of Gloucestershire in 1951–52; and what is the estimate for 1963–64.

Mr. Marples

Records of expenditure in 1951–52 are no longer available, but the figures for the years 1953–54 and 1963–64 are as follows:

1953–54 £92,951
1963–64 £1,342,421

These figures are for expenditure from Central Government funds on trunk roads, including motorways, and classfied roads for which the county council is the highway authority.
