asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will ensure that any undertakings given to Mr. Grooby, of 48 London Road, Boston, Lincs, by his Department will now be carried out.
A detailed formal offer to provide noise insulation in Mr. Grooby's house is expected to be sent to him by Boston Borough Council, the Department's agents, within a few days. Unless he opts to make his own arrangements and claim grant towards the cost, the work will then be carried out when the council is able to find contractors prepared to do it. Its difficulties in finding interested firms account for most of the delay since I wrote to the hon. Member on 18th March 1977.
