§ Mr. P. Noel-Baker
asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the long delays in granting authorisation for the construction of the Bradshaw Way section of the Inner Ring Road in the County Borough of Derby, he will give an assurance that financial clearance for this scheme will now be granted.
§ Mr. Marples
I have now approved the Derby Inner Road scheme in principle and have authorised the issue of grant for both the Bradshaw Way section and the Willow Row/Bridge Gate section. The Derby County Borough Council will receive formal notification of this within the next few days.
