HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 cc1398-9
18. Mr. Dance

asked the Minister of Transport what alteration there has been in the timing of the programme for providing the link between the M.1 and the M.6.

Mr. Swingler

None, Sir.

Mr. Dance

Is not the hon. Gentleman aware that the biggest snarl up in the whole of the road system is in this area? Is he aware that this is the main artery from the West to the Midlands and the South, including the ports which are so essential to our exports? Will he not speed up this vitally important programme?

Mr. Swingler

It is just because my right hon. Friend realises that that he has not altered the programme at all. That is why we are proceeding as rapidly as possible with the Midlands motorway link.
