§ 53. Mr. Fernyhough
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will give an assurance that the recent Government announcement that capital investment in the public sector next year will not be allowed to exceed this year's will not delay in any way the commencing and completing of the Tyne Tunnel.
§ Mr. Marples
It is unlikely that schemes for which grant has already been authorised will be affected. The Tyne Tunnel is such a scheme.
