HC Deb 19 April 1967 vol 745 cc83-4W
71. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Minister of Transport whether she will now undertake the extension southwards of M5, in view of the number of unemployed men in Cheltenham suitable for work on such a project.

Mr. Swingler

Advance works on the Bredon Bridge and approaches are ex- petted to start in June. But outstanding statutory procedures and land acquisition prevent an early start on the main road works.
