§ Viscount Lambton
asked the Minister of Transport whether the route of A.1 from Newcastle to Edinburgh has yet been decided upon.
§ Mr. Marples
There are no plans to make any substantial alteration of the present route. Improvements will be made mainly along or near the existing line of the road. A number of by-passes are planned and those for Alnwick and Morpeth are included in my trunk roads programme.
