HC Deb 23 February 1966 vol 725 cc102-3W
Mr. MacArthur

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he will approve proposals for a bypass round the west and south of Perth; when construction will begin; and if he will give an assurance that the bypass, which is not included in the road programme up to 1970, will be completed by the early 1970s, as stated in paragraph 289 of The Scottish Economy, 1965 to 1970, Command Paper No. 2864.

Mr. Ross

The section of the bypass between the Stirling-Perth and Perth-Dundee trunk roads is included in the mileage we hope to complete by the early 1970s, but I cannot at this stage forecast the date when work on it will start.
