HC Deb 04 November 1959 vol 612 cc47-8W
68. Mr. Hirst

asked the Minister of Transport what priority is now afforded to the Leicestershire and Yorkshire sections, respectively, of the London-Yorkshire motorway; and by what approximate date he anticipates construction commencing.

Mr. Marples

We are pressing ahead with these schemes as fast as possible. First, I must complete the statutory processes. Until this is done, I cannot forecast how soon construction can begin.
