82. Mr. David Adams
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that road A694, between Shotley Bridge and Scotswood, county Durham is in bad condition; and whether, in view of the un employment in that county, he will give instructions for the requisite repairs to be carried out forthwith?
§ Mr. Burgin
The highway authority for this road is the Durham County Council. I understand that they propose to reconstruct about 11 miles in 1942 and 1943 at an estimated cost of £100,000. In the meantime, such temporary repairs as may be necessary will be carried out.
