HC Deb 25 January 1971 vol 810 c38W
Mr. Golding

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is his present estimate of capital expenditure on urban roads for each of the next five years.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

Roads in urban areas are primarily the responsibility of local authorities but expenditure upon them would be substantially equivalent to that on principal roads which I expect to rise over the next couple of years to around £150 million per annum. Figures for the following years cannot at present be given.
