HC Deb 11 May 1964 vol 695 cc28-9W
Mr. Vane

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will give instructions for an urgent exploratory survey to be made of road connections from M.6 to the neighbourhood of Hest Bank and from Bardsea to the Duddon which, by linking up with a barrage, would form part of a scheme to improve communications generally to Barrow and West Cumberland.

Mr. Galbraith

Schemes which have been put forward for a barrage across Morecambe Bay incorporating a road to improve communications with Barrow and West Cumberland are already being examined by the North-West Regional Study Group as part of the study announced on 2nd March by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development. My Department is associated with this study.
