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 29W 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.
