HC Deb 28 April 1971 vol 816 cc99-100W
48. Mr. Turton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has considered the representations made to him by the Skelton Village Trust on the proposed alteration to the line of the A19 near the village of Skelton; and whether he will hold a local public inquiry so that the advantages of the alternative line suggested by the Village Trust may be fully investigated.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

The representation made by the Skelton Village Trust is one of several under examination to consider, among other things, whether a public inquiry should be held. This examination was delayed, the final date of 4th February for receipt of the further representations invited from objectors being extended because of the postal strike, but it will be completed and an announcement made as soon as possible.
