HC Deb 24 May 1966 vol 729 cc47-8W
59. Mr. Allason

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether his proposals for supplementary grants for local authorities for roads will take into account the width of the road and the traffic volume it bears.

Mr. MacColl

Not directly but supplementary payments are to be made in respect of principal roads, which are generally the wider roads, and the amount per mile will be higher where the ratio of population to miles of principal road is high.
