HC Deb 27 November 1973 vol 865 cc102-3W
Sir J. Rodgers

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what percentage of dwellings were owner-occupied, privately rented and publicly rented in each of the years 1914, 1939, 1951, 1970 and the latest date for which figures are available.

Mr. Eyre

Estimates from 1944 onwards are given below :

to dual carriageway standard ; and whether he will authorise dual carriageway for the A1 bypasses to be constructed at Felton, Warenford, Belford and Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Mr. Speed

Present traffic volumes do not justify the dualling of Alnwick bypass, and neither present nor projected traffic flows justify construction of the proposed bypasses at Felton, Warenford, Belford and Berwick-upon-Tweed to dual carriageway standards. Nevertheless, I share the hon. Member's concern about the number of accidents on the Alnwick bypass and am considering what measures might be taken to reduce the risk of accidents.
