§ Mr. Gower
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he will take to expedite the implementation in Wales of the provisions of the Agriculture (Improvement of Roads) Act, 1955, specially designed to meet the particular needs of upland areas in the Principality; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Godber
Improvement schemes already approved for roads in Welsh upland areas cover 107 miles at an estimated cost of some £270,000. The Ministry's Welsh Department is doing everything possible to expedite approval of schemes submitted by highway authorities, within the limits imposed by the general economic situation.
