HC Deb 07 July 1971 vol 820 c371W
49. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representation he has received from South-East Lancashire, North-East Cheshire concerning an underground transport system in the central Manchester area; and what funds he intends to make available for this project.

Mr. Peyton

One of the main recommendations in the S.E.L.N.E.C. Land Use /Transportation Study is for an underground rail link between Piccadilly and Victoria stations. Discussions are taking place between my Department and the authorities concerned.
