HC Deb 18 May 1971 vol 817 c274W
Mr. Raymond Fletcher

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will pay an official visit to Ripley, Derbyshire, to conduct an investigation of the traffic congestion on the A61 and assess the need for the proposed new bypass.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

No. I accept the need for this bypass. Preparatory work to identify the best route is now in hand.
