HC Deb 22 July 1968 vol 769 c29W
Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the future improvements he plans to make to the A68 trunk road following the recommendations of the Johnson-Marshall Plan for the Borders; and what the cost of such improvements will be.

Mr. Ross

I accept the recommendation in the Central Borders Plan that major improvements should be made to the A68. Some works are already in progress and others are being planned, but I cannot yet make a comprehensive statement.
