§ Mr. Arthur Pearson
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the present position with regard to the commencement of work on the construction of the first section of the Cardiff—Merthyr trunk road.
§ Mr. George Thomas
The preparation of the contract documents is in its final stages and I hope to invite tenders before the end of this month. Tenders will be received by September and the contract will be let as soon as possible thereafter.
