HC Deb 25 January 1971 vol 810 cc37-8W
Mr. Golding

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many miles of motorway it is intended to build in each of the next five years.

Mr. Graham Page

Over 750 miles of motorway are being built or in preparation, and I expect this will be largely completed during the next five years. The mileage completed in any one year will depend on a number of factors including satisfactory progress during the statutory procedures and the construction.
