HC Deb 12 January 1971 vol 809 c24W
Mr. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment to what extent the road works programme in North Staffordshire will be cut as a result of the proposed reductions in Government expenditure.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

The main motorway and trunk road programme remains unchanged. Progress on principal road schemes must depend on the rate at which local authorities in North Staf-fordshire and throughout the country prepare individual schemes to grant application stage.
