§ Major Owen
asked the Minister of Transport what is the total estimated cost of road-works to be carried out by the Ministry or eligible for grants from the Road Fund which have been suspended owing to the war?
§ Captain Wallace
The total estimated cost of the road works which will not now be carried out owing to the war cannot yet be stated. The actual expenditure on schemes in hand at the outbreak of war will depend on the point at which work can be stopped, while preliminary expenditure will have been incurred on other schemes which will not now proceed.
