asked the Minister of Transport how many acres of land in rural areas and in urban areas have been taken for motorway and trunk road building; and how many for local authority road building since 1959.

I regret that the information requested is not readily available. Land requirements are considered in relation to individual road schemes, but the Department keeps no comprehensive records of land taken.
