HC Deb 31 March 1971 vol 814 cc385-6W
144. Mr. Madel

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is satisfied that adequate arrangements will be in force to cope with the large increase in traffic on the two-lane stretch of the M1, south of Bedfordshire, during the Easter holiday period; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Graham Page

I am actively considering the problems arising from the large volume of traffic using this six miles of dual two-lane carriageway of the M1. Control of the traffic on the motorway is the responsibility of the police.
