HC Deb 05 May 1971 vol 816 cc375-6W
Mr. Lomas

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what proposals he has for the extension of the M1 bypassing Leeds and joining the A1 north of Wetherby.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

My right hon. Friend is considering the results of a study to assess the feasibility of a new or improved route to relieve the Al as an outlet to the north-east for traffic from south of Leeds. His decision will be announced as soon as possible.
