HC Deb 24 November 1966 vol 736 c348W
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.
