HC Deb 05 May 1954 vol 527 c359
38. Mr. P. Williams

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether, in view of the need for safer and more efficient industrial communications, he will make a statement on the construction of a Sunderland by-pass road.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The proposed Sunderland by-pass would involve about 8½ miles of new road at a cost of over £1 million, and I regret I cannot say when it will be possible to fit this scheme into the road programme.

Mr. Williams

Can my right hon. Friend make a statement about any future programme and any major development of a road scheme in the North-East?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

No, Sir. There is a Question on that on the Order Paper.
