§ 18. Sir D. Renton
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will now announce his intention with regard to building a bypass for the village of Kimbolton.
§ Sir D. Renton
Is my hon. Friend aware that it looks from other answers and letters that I have received that decisions on these matters will not be taken for a year or two? Meanwhile juggernauts are unable to negotiate the bends at each end of this ancient village, and the walls of scheduled buildings centuries old are being knocked down. Will he do his best to give the highest priority for a bypass for Kimbolton?
§ Mr. Speed
I appreciate that improvements are needed. We have accelerated the feasibility study and we hope to have the answers by the end of this year. It should solve many of the traffic problems that my hon. Friend and my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Huntingdonshire (Sir D. Renton) have in their constituencies.
