HC Deb 20 July 1967 vol 750 c2445
3. Mr. Arthur Pearson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will give an assurance that tenders for Stage I of the improvement of the Cardiff—Merthyr trunk road, A470 will be invited it October or November next; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ifor Davies

Land acquisition is well advanced and my right hon. Friend expects to publish in August a compulsory purchase order for land not yet acquired. Subject to any objections received, he should be able to invite tenders before the end of the year.
