HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 c1340
31. Mr. Normanton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what proposals he has for progressing the A6 diversion in the Hazel Grove area.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

My right hon. Friend hopes to publish proposals for the line of the Hazel Grove bypass during late 1971.

Mr. Normanton

While thanking my hon. Friend for that reply, may I again draw his attention to the fact that there is a considerable sense of frustration felt by people who live in the district and by the very large volume of traffic which flows through it? May I earnestly hope that the Government will give urgent consideration to imposing the maximum priority for the completion of this work?

Mr. Heseltine

We are well aware of the importance of devising a properly integrated system, and this is bound to take some time.
