§ Mr. Gwynfor Evans
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will give his estimate of the percentage increase in the number of vehicles by 1980 on the Carmarthen-St. Clears section of the A48/ A40 road.
§ Mr. Cledwyn Hughes
The factors determining the growth of road traffic are many and complex and any forecast must necessarily be tentative. It is estimated that the general increase in traffic between now and 1980 will be in the region of 70 per cent. I have no basis for assuming either a higher or lower longterm rate of growth on this particular road.
