§ Mr. Alison
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government to what extent he proposes to restrict expenditure by local authorities in England and Wales on minor street works following the Government's new economic measures.
§ Mr. Crossman
I assume that the hon. Member refers to expenditure on making up private streets. Loan sanctions will continue to be restricted to works required at once for reasons of public health or public safety, or under a valid statutory notice under Section 203 of the Highways Act, 1959.
