HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 c195W
Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will encourage local road authorities to provide hard shoulders on two- or three-lane single carriageway roads, as is done in France.

Mr. Tom Fraser

No. The provision of hard shoulders on single carriageway roads would divert the limited funds available for road construction from other improvements which are more effective in saving accidents and helping traffic flow.
