HC Deb 26 July 1966 vol 732 cc238-9W
Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Minister of Transport whether the reductions in public investment will apply to the road programmes in development districts and development areas.

Mr. John Morris

The present measures take the form of a reduction in the overall levels of expenditure that might otherwise have been achieved in this year and next and are not directed to particular categories of road schemes. It will he for my right hon. Friends the Minister of Transport and the Secretaries of State for Scotland and Wales so to manage their programmes as to achieve this effect in the way they consider most appropriate. So far as England is concerned I would refer the hon. Member to the Answer given yesterday to the hon. Member for Glasgow, Cathcart (Mr. Edward M. Taylor).
