§ Mr. Peter Walker
asked the Minister of Transport, taking 1st November 1963 as 100, what estimate she has made of the indices of cost of road construction at 1st November for each year from 1964 to 1967.
§ Mr. Swingler
Figures are not available in precisely this form. In contracts let during 1964 and 1966, the average cost of road construction was estimated to be about 4 per cent. and 9 per cent. higher respectively than in 1963.
The estimate for 1967 is not yet available.
