HC Deb 18 December 1972 vol 848 c248W
40. Mr. Jeffrey Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what studies are at present being undertaken by his Department with regard to roads in Monmouthshire; when they will be completed; and what action he intends to take.

Mr. Peter Thomas

The trunk road system is kept under continuous review by my Department and a working party is considering the need for a second bypass of Newport. A land use/transportation study commissioned by Monmouthshire County Council for the county has recently been completed and I understand the consultants' final report is expected shortly.
