§ 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. 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 103W might be taken to reduce the risk of accidents.
