§ Sir W. Bromley-Davenport
asked the Minister of Transport if he will give particulars of the 12 firms which have received, in aggregate, the greatest value of road building contracts of over —100,000 for principal roads, as distinct from trunk roads and motorways, in the past three years, and the total value of the contracts received by each.
Mr. Bob Brown
Principal roads are primarily the responsibility of the local highway authorities concerned. The 283W information requested is not readily available and could only be provided at disproportionate expense.
