HC Deb 16 November 1971 vol 826 c119W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he has taken to improve roads in the South-West which have carried and will carry extra traffic caused by changed traffic patterns due to the opening of motorways in the region.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

This is largely a matter for local planning authorities. I shall be discussing the problem on 18th November with their representatives on the Joint Committee for the South-West at a conference convened at my request by the South-West Economic Planning Council.
