§ Mr. Michael Heseltine
I regret that my right hon. Friend is unable to include these proposals in the trunk road lighting programme for the present.
§ Mr. Marks
Is the Minister aware that this junction is the one at which most of 447 the Manchester-to-London traffic joins and leaves the motorway and that the traffic will be very considerably increased when the M6 link is completed? Travelling at this junction is a very hazardous occupation. Would the Minister expedite this matter as much as he can?
§ Mr. Heseltine
I shall certainly keep the matter under review. Obviously we will want to be sure that there is no unnecessary danger which would prejudice the figures on which our calculations have been made.
