§ Mr. Horam
The inspector's report on the public inquiry held in April into the draft compulsory purchase order and side roads variation orders is at present under consideration. Subject to the satisfactory completion of these outstanding statutory procedures and to the availability of funds, the bypass could be completed by the end of 1980.
§ Mr. Wall
Is the Minister aware that the Humber bridge—the biggest single, span bridge in the world—is due for completion at the end of next year and that there will be grave congestion throughout the area unless this bypass follows it very quickly? Will he therefore do everything that he can to speed up the work?
