HC Deb 07 March 1973 vol 852 cc395-6
17. Mrs. Castle

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he can now announce the date when he expects the line of the North-East Lancashire motorway where it passes through Blackburn to be announced.

Mr. Peyton

I would refer the right hon. Lady to the reply given to her similar Question on 14th February.—[Vol. 850, c. 1270–1.]

Mrs. Castle

But cannot the right hon. Gentleman at least give me an approximate date so that my constituents know where they are? Will it be within the next three months?

Mr. Peyton

I promise the right hon. Lady that I have no desire to keep her or her constituents in the dark. I shall gladly give her all the information that I can at the earliest possible moment. I should not wish to mislead her.
