§ Dr. Spink
I am grateful to my hon. Friend for that reply. The A130 Canvey Island link dualling and the Saddlers Farm roundabout improvements form part of the lower Thames crossing consideration. Is my hon. Friend 11 aware that the Lib-Lab pact in Essex county council has recently suspended all design work on those two important schemes? Is not that shameful?
§ Mr. Key
I am surprised in one sense because I know that the A130 was a contender for transport supplementary grant. That means that it will not be available later. On the other hand, I am not surprised because I happen to have two newspaper headlines from different ends of the country, one of which refers to the Liberals describing a bypass as an "environmental obscenity" and the other which states:Liberals back call for a motorway.There we are.
