§ Sir W. Bromley-Davenport
asked the Minister of Transport what progress has been made towards the construction of the M.5 between Quinton and Great Barr; and when work will commence.
§ Mr. Marples
I have made the scheme establishing the line of the motorway. Proposals for necessary alterations to side roads have been published. These are now open to objection. Since construction depends upon these statutory processes and the acquisition of land, it is too early to say when it will begin.
