HC Deb 11 May 1966 vol 728 cc90-1W
89. Sir B. Janner

asked the Minister of Transport if she will outline the progress made in the preparation of the plan for further motorways in the decade from 1970; and when the plan will be announced.

Mr. Swingler

The Department has consulted the Regional Economic Planning Councils and other planning bodies concerned, about its assessment of the need for the development of the interurban road system in the 1970's. This assessment is now being studied by the Government and in the meantime it is not possible to say when any statement about it might be made.
