HC Deb 23 January 1963 vol 670 c69W
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.
