HC Deb 07 June 1972 vol 838 cc84-5W
40. Mr. Edwin Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is aware that the Wath-upon-Dearne town centre programme is in danger of being delayed because of the need for the town bypass road to be built; and taking into consideration the unemployment that exists in this area, if he will take steps to ensure that the building of this bypass road commences as soon as possible.

Mr. Speed

My right hon. Friend has already put into the principal road preparation list schemes for roads which would by-pass Wath-upon-Dearne. It is now the responsibility of the local highway authority to submit to my right hon. Friend a proposal for the inclusion of one of these schemes in the principal roads programme.
