§ Lord Balniel
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs when he expects to announce his decision on the recent inquiry into the route of the Hertford relief road.
§ Mr. Corfield
The route of the Hertford relief road is shown in the development plan approved in 1958. Further consideration has however been given to the route in the context of proposals for the designation of land for acquisition for the construction of the road. My right hon. Friend's inspector recommended the acceptance of the proposed designation, which implies the retention of the approved route subject to a minor228W change. He has accepted his inspector's recommendation, and is sending out his decision letter today.
