§ Mr. Delargy
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will give an assurance that the building of the second Dartford Tunnel and the North Orbital Road will be advanced without delay, and that the building of the second tunnel and the adjoining roads will be carried out together.
§ Mr. Michael Heseltine
Discussions with the Dartford Tunnel Joint Committee about the timing of a second tunnel and preparation of the orbital routes north of it are both in progress.
I accept the desirability of building the tunnel and approach roads together.
