asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation the percentage increase in the estimated grant for road maintenance, improvement, and new construction to Staffordshire for 1954โ€“55 compared with 1953โ€“54; and how this compares with the highest percentage increase in grant to any county or county borough in the country.

It is too early to estimate what grants will be made to individual authorities for major improvements and new construction in the current financial year. The estimated grant to Staffordshire for the maintenance and minor improvement of classified roads in 1954โ€“55 exceeds the grant made in the previous year by 31ยท9 per cent., which is the highest percentage increase in the country.
