§ Mr. SHINWELL
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether the experiments in road-laying by selected processes, conducted by the late Government, have indicated whether it is possible to provide roads which will stand the wear and tear arising from heavy motor transport; and if information respecting the results of such experiments will be laid before the House?
§ Lieut.-Colonel ASHLEY
I am not aware of the particular experiments to which the hon. Member refers, but 2407W certain tests are being continuously carried out at the National Physical Laboratory, and it is proposed to publish some account of them in the Annual Report on the Administration of the Road Fund for the current year.
