asked the Minister of Transport whether he will give the necessary instructions to ensure that, in the construction of new arterial and by-pass roads, proper provision is made, where possible, on one or both sides for equestrian traffic, especially in the rural districts?

Every encouragement is given to highway authorities to provide on new roads sufficient space to accommodate all forms of traffic, and, whilst I do not think it necessary to issue the instructions suggested by the hon. Member, I am fully prepared to consider any application that may be submitted for the provision of special accommodation for equestrian traffic where the circumstances justify such a step.
