§ Mr. Wingfield Digby
asked the Minister of Transport what reduction there has been in the road programme and road improvement schemes in Dorset owing to the credit squeeze.
§ Mr. Swingler
There is a reduction in the current year's commitments of £111,000. Schemes authorised next year will be related to a financial allocation for the country as a whole. How far Dorset schemes will be affected will depend on the comparative rate of progress of their preparation.469W
