§ 46. Mr. Gwynfor Evans
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what proportion of the Government's expenditure on roads was spent in Wales from 1956 to 1966; and what proportion is to be spent in Wales from 1966 to 1971.
§ Mr. Ifor Davies
It averaged 7 per cent. between April, 1956, and April, 1966, and is expected to be the same in 1966–67. Expenditure from April, 1967, onwards has still to be decided.
§ Mr. William Edwards
asked the Minister of Transport whether a road construction unit will be set up in Wales.
§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
asked the Minister of Transport if she will establish in Wales a road construction unit for the whole of Wales similar to, but separate from, any of the road construction units operating in England.
§ Mr. Cledwyn Hughes
I have been asked to reply. I have been kept fully informed by my right hon. Friend, the Minister of Transport of her discussions with the county councils' associations and I am considering whether it would be advantageous to make similar arrangements in Wales.
