HC Deb 01 May 1968 vol 763 c204W
62. Mr. Willey

asked the Minister of Transport what adjustments in starting dates have been made in the national road programme affecting the Northern Region.

Mr. Marsh

We have made none yet, so far as major schemes are concerned.

In the case of smaller works in the Northern Division costing under £¼ million each, a reduction of just over £½ million has been made to the total value of trunk road schemes to be authorised and of principal road schemes to be approved for grant during 1968–69. Revised programmes have been drawn up for 1968–69 and 1969–70 and notified to the local authorities concerned.
