HC Deb 26 July 1961 vol 645 cc420-1
43. Mr. Lindsay

asked the Minister of Transport why, in respect of the county of Warwick, he has not so far authorised any classified road scheme of over £100,000 grant value for the next three years; and when any such additional authorisation can be expected.

Mr. Hay

We have been able to include in the first three year programme only those schemes which command the highest priority throughout the country, having regard to the urgent need to alleviate congestion in our cities. I regret that it was not possible to include all the schemes submitted. We hope to announce the programme for 1964–65 later this year.

Mr. Mellish

Cain we have an assurance that road schemes of this character which have been announced will not be cut back because of any financial arrangements about which we heard something yesterday?

Mr. Hay

I cannot depart from the terms in which my right hon. and learned Friend addressed the House yesterday.

Forward to
