Thus,at the resumed hearing,Dundridge leans on convenor Lord Leakham -using Lady Maud's threats to sue him for having her falsely imprisoned - to save the hall. He is,reluctantly,put in charge with supervising the construction of the new route. A grateful Lady Maud invites him to dinner and contrives to have him stay the night but,after being pursued by an amorous lady and shot at by Blott,"defending her honour", an irate,and nude,Dundridge vows to run the motorway through Handyman Hall after all.
