HC Deb 28 July 1965 vol 717 c106W
54. Mr. Wainwright

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make an up-to-date progress report on the plans for the Lancashire-Yorkshire motorway.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The route through Lancashire and across the Pennines has been fixed. The adjacent length eastwards between Outlane and Lofthouse in Yorkshire has been the subject of a public inquiry. I have received the inspector's report and shall be announcing my decision shortly. Plans are not yet finalised for the remainder of the route eastwards to the A.1.
