HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 c192W
88. Mr. Scott-Hopkins

asked the Minister of Transport if he will now restore the cuts in the road-building programme for the South-West made after the Chancellor's statement in July 1965.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The deferred schemes should now begin six months later than the starting date originally planned, and I am unable to shorten this period. No decision has yet been taken on the deferment of schemes with planned starting dates after January, 1966.
