Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: M1 Motorway (27 Feb 1984)

Greg Knight: In the light of that reply, will my hon. Friend comment on the situation in Hertfordshire where a stretch of newly constructed fast lane hard shoulder has apparently been scrapped immediately after completion by being covered over with fill and edged with a kerb?

I believe that he is one of the lucky casualties of 9 June, in that he has quickly...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Public Order Act 1936 ( 3 Nov 1983)
