HC Deb 06 July 1971 vol 820 cc359-60W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in his proposals to promote economic growth through improvements to the strategic road network, he plans to promote growth in any particular region of the country by virtue of the distribution of capital resources at his disposal; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Walker

My aim is to provide all the regions with an adequate trunk road network and high standard links with the rest of the country.
