HC Deb 06 July 1960 vol 626 cc39-40W
52. Mr. Jeger

asked the Minister of Transport what difference there is between the newly-proposed by-pass at Selby and the by-pass scheme which was dropped following a public inquiry before the war; when details of the line of route of the new by-pass will be made available; and whether it will be submitted to a local public inquiry.

Mr. Marples

Following a public inquiry in 1937, a route for a by-pass of Selby on the A.63 was established by an order, made in 1938, which is still effective. If I should at any time decide not to adopt this route for the by-pass, I should, of course, publish a revised draft order showing an alternative route. Whether or not a public inquiry was held would depend on the objections received.
