HC Deb 28 June 1971 vol 820 cc29-30W
100. Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in considering the inclusion of the West Cross Route, Holland Park to Chelsea, in the road programme, he will take into account the road's value for money, in terms of its costs and benefits, including its effect on the environment and on the development of London, its implications for the south-east generally and the allocation of resources between competing claimants, both in the transport sector and beyond; and if he will publish a statement justifying his decision.
