asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government (1) how many private roads in Wales were not made up at the commencement of the last war; how many of these have now been made up; and how many he estimates will be made up during the next year.(2) what proportion of pre-war private roads in Wales which were unmade before the last war have now been made up; and how this compares with the proportion in England.

Local authorities in Wales have been authorised since the last war to make up some 300 private streets. The corresponding number for England is 4,200. I regret that the rest of the information asked for is not available.My right hon. Friend cannot forecast how many will be made up next year, but they are being and will be authorised as freely as possible.
