asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works as representing the Lord President of the Council, what work is being undertaken by the Road Research Laboratory of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research.

The research carried out by the Road Research Laboratory falls into two broad divisions: first, into road materials and road construction (in order to show how roads can be made cheaper and more durable): second, into traffic flow and road safety. Fuller information is given in the annual reports on road research. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of the 1953 report.
