HC Deb 28 July 1965 vol 717 c108W
73. Mr. Ennals

asked the Minister of Transport what representations he has received from the Kent County Council following his exclusion of the proposed Sandwich bypass from the five-year road programme until 1969; and whether he will now consider granting authority for one lane to be built to relieve the mounting congestion in the town.

Mr. Fraser

The Council asked me on 22nd July to consider this bypass as the next major classified road scheme to be authorised in Kent, or alternatively to authorise one carriageway now for duplication later. I will write to my hon. Friend when I have considered the supporting case which the council has promised.
