HC Deb 21 July 1953 vol 46 c230W
Mr. Ashdown

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will provide information on the progress of the consultations over the Ilminster bypass.

Mrs. Chalker

Following publication of our formal scheme proposals in June 1982, we have decided, in the light of objections received, to revise some of the proposed alterations to local roads and accesses. We expect to publish a further draft side roads order in September, and a draft compulsory purchase order for the whole scheme very shortly thereafter. In accordance with the statutory provisions, the public will have the opportunity to comment on the new draft orders once they are published.
