HC Deb 24 February 1954 vol 524 c37W
80. Sir R. Perkins

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation the cause of the delay in the starting of the new by-pass round north Bristol; and when he anticipates work will begin.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Work cannot start until the line of this diversion has been settled by an order under the Civil Aviation Act, 1949. Such an order is subject to special Parliamentary procedure and requires due notice and a period for objections, which may necessitate a public inquiry. I cannot forecast exactly how long this procedure will take.
