HC Deb 24 February 1970 vol 796 c274W
53. Mr. Willey

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will give the figures for public investment in roads in the Northern Region for each of the last 10 years.

Mr. Bob Brown

The amount of public money invested in new and improved roads in the Region (excluding land costs) has been as follows:

Financial Year £ million
1963–64 8.8
1964–65 9.4
1965–66 6.9
1966–67 16.0
1967–68 25.5
1968–69 38.0

Figures for earlier years are not readily available. This year we expect the corresponding total to reach —45 million.
