§ 72. Mr. Dodds
asked the Minister of Transport, in view of the increasing concern at the lack of public conveniences at lay-bys on trunk roads, and with the health menace that this presents, how long his Department has been considering this matter; with what result; and what organisations have made representations to him on this problem.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
It is nine months since the Department received the County Councils Association's comprehensive report on conditions at trunk road lay-bys.
There have also been representations from other local authority associations, motoring organisations and farming interests.67W
I am in touch with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Housing and Local Government about this difficult problem. We hope to arrange a further discussion with the local authority associations in the near future and will make known our conclusions as soon as possible after that. In the meantime I can add little to the reply given to my hon. Friend on 11th November.
