§ Mr. Russell
asked the Minister of Transport when he expects that the A.1 will have dual carriageway all the way from London to Newcastle.
§ Mr. Marples
247 of the 270 miles of A.1 between London and Newcastle will have dual carriageways by 1967. The remaining 23 miles which are not yet in the programme will be dualled as soon thereafter as possible, but I cannot give a date for completion at this stage.
