HC Deb 04 May 1966 vol 727 c1611
28. Sir G. Sinclair

asked the Minister of Transport whether she will now make a statement on her plans for the south orbital road.

Mr. Swingler

My right hon. Friend hopes to make a statement soon.

Sir G. Sinclair

Is the Minister aware that there is strong local criticism of the delay in reaching decisions about the westward projection of the south orbital road from Pebble Hill, which is holding up important decisions on the realignment of the A25?

Mr. Swingler

The hon. Gentleman will know that several important decisions have been made and announced. This is a very complex subject and, as he knows very well, the territory is not easy to traverse. We have been considering this very carefully and a statement will be made very soon indeed.
