HC Deb 17 February 1967 vol 741 c189W
Mr. Mackintosh

asked the Minister of Transport whether it is now possible to reach a decision about the precise line of the Al road through Berwick-upon-Tweed, as the delay in reaching a decision on this question is prejudicing the development of the town and of the road north through Berwickshire.

Mr. Swingler

Improvement of the A1 through Berwick-upon-Tweed will affect the Elizabethan Wall, an important ancient monument, and will involve planning considerations. A proposed scheme is at present awaiting the views of the Departments concerned with those aspects.
