HC Deb 07 April 1925 vol 182 c2026
79. Mr. RILEY

asked the Minister of Transport what is the length of the new road from Manchester to Liverpool, giving the average width, the acreage of land which has been purchased in the making of the road, the average price per acre, and the total cost of the road?

Colonel ASHLEY

Negotiations regarding the proposed new road are not sufficiently advanced to enable me to give the hon. Member the information which he desires. I am not aware that any land purchases have taken place.
