§ Commander Pursey
asked the Minister of Transport how long his Department expects to take in studying the report from Messrs. Scott & Wilson, Kirkpatrick & Partners with regard to trunk road requirements between Hull and the Great North Road; and, in view of the urgency of the problem, when a decision is likely to be made and the work started.
§ Mr. Marples
I cannot yet say how long it will take to reach conclusions on this report, which is expected to be of wide scope. But I am well aware of the urgency and importance of improving trunk road communication between Hull and the Great North Road. I have already made provision for some of the work which will arise from the report in the extension of the trunk road programme I announced in October last.
