asked the Minister of Transport if his divisional office has now authorised the building of a shelter in Newland Street, Witham, Essex, in connection with the Festival of Britain, details of which were submitted in January; and what was the cause of the delay in dealing with this matter.

I have no power to authorise the placing of this shelter on the highway, but my divisional officer indicated last month that I would raise no objection provided that it was set back a proper distance from the main carriageway. Various inquiries and consultations were necessary for the proper consideration of the proposal.
