asked the Minister of Transport the approximate mileages of roads upon which building and improvement lines, under the Roads Improvement Act, 1925, the Public Health Act, 1925, and the latest Surrey, Essex and Middlesex County Council Acts, have been prescribed from 1925 to date?

I have been asked to reply. Up to the 31st March, 1934, building and improvement lines had been prescribed under these Acts upon approxi-2,500 miles of roads.

Will the Minister of Transport draw attention to the very satisfactory progress which has been made in this matter, and point out to local authorities that if they continue at this speed further legislation will become unnecessary?
