HC Deb 05 February 1964 vol 688 c159W
63. Sir B. Janner

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will make a statement on the progress of the construction of the M.1 road; and how many miles of the road he proposes to open for use this year.

Mr. Marples

Thirty-nine miles of the extension of this motorway are under construction. About 7½ miles are expected to come into use this year. Tenders for further sections are being invited as the statutory processes and engineering preparations are completed.
