HC Deb 29 May 1963 vol 678 c144W
76. Sir B. Janner

asked the Minister of Transport to what extent it will be necessary to expedite the present road programme in order to achieve his target of providing 1,000 miles of motorway by 1970.

Mr. Marples

Already we have 997½ miles of motorway in use, under construction, in the planning stages or under consideration. Exact completion dates will depend on the funds made available by Parliament and on the fulfilment of the statutory procedures laid down by Parliament.
