HC Deb 16 June 1971 vol 819 cc436-7
26. Mr. Michael Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied with the adequacy of roads for which he is responsible in the development areas; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Graham Page

The plans for inter-urban trunk roads in England which my right hon. Friend hopes to announce very shortly will fully reflect the Government's pledge to improve roads in the development areas.

Mr. Roberts

May I inform my hon. Friend that that answer will be welcomed by most hon. Members who represent, and the people living in, development areas?
