Mr. Geraint Morgan
asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether, in view of the lapse of time since the publication of the original Collern proposals and the anxiety felt by residents of Colwyn Bay who may be affected by them, he will now make a further statement on when he expects to receive the report from the consulting engineers who are examining possible alternative routes.
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
Because of the need to take into account recent developments, the consulting engineers' report is unlikely to be completed until the autumn.
I shall then wish to consider the report but I want to relieve the present anxiety 272W and I shall make a preliminary announcement of my conclusions as soon as I can.
