HC Deb 15 December 1971 vol 828 c120W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) if he will ensure that traffic using the M4 motorway from London, bound for Devon and Cornwall, is not signposted through the northeastern suburbs of Bristol;

(2) what steps he proposes to take to discourage traffic bound for Devon and Cornwall from London, using the M4 motorway to Bristol prior to completion of the Avon Bridge.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

There is no proposal to direct this traffic through the suburbs of Bristol and I propose to discourage it from leaving M4 in the Bristol area by means of suitable publicity.
