HC Deb 24 February 1965 vol 707 c106W
65. Mr. Dance

asked the Minister of Transport if he will state the progress of the statutory processes in each section of the Midland link between the M.1 and M.6; when these processes will be completed in each section; and when he expects construction work to be completed in each section.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The line for the whole link between Dunston (Staffs) and Catthorpe (Northants) has been established and the length from Dunston to Darlaston is under construction for completion next year.

Comprehensive side road proposals have been published as far south as Ray Hall and it is aimed to complete construction up to this point at the same time as the works on M.5 between Ray Hall and Quinton are completed.

Statutory work on the remaining lengths between Ray Hall and Catthorpe is expected to be finished in time to enable construction of the whole link to be completed by the early 1970's.
