§ Mr. A. Edwards
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport if he is aware that any plans for trunk roads connecting the North-East coast which do not include the Tees district will create an unfair advantage to development areas North of the Tees; and if he will reconsider his plans and include the Tees as a whole as an integral part of the North-East coast.
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
My Noble Friend's proposals for the extension of the trunk road system include additional trunk roads in the area of the Tees, and I hope that when these proposals are presented to Parliament my hon. Friend will agree that they have met the point he has in mind.
