HC Deb 22 March 1961 vol 637 cc373-4
15. Mr. Coulson

asked the Minister of Transport what conclusions he has reached on the construction of an East Yorkshire motorway to link the port of Hull with the Yorkshire motorway.

Mr. Hay

On present plans, the Lancashire-Yorkshire Motorway will terminate near Ledsham on the A.1. Through traffic between the A.1 and Hull will be served by improvements of the all-purpose roads. As my hon. Friend is aware, a number of new schemes are in hand or in prospect on this part of the trunk road system. We do not consider that any extension of the motorway will be called for.

Mr. Coulson

While thanking my hon. Friend for that reply, may I ask if he will, when occasion arises, give urgent consideration to this matter of an eastern limb for the Yorkshire motorway and to other proposals which may improve the road communications to and from the Port of Hull?

Mr. Hay

Yes, Sir. We always bear these considerations in mind.
