§ Sir Gilbert Longden
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why, in his Department's Press notice of 19th April, it is stated that hard shoulders are to be replaced by verges on the M1 motorway.
§ Mr. Speed:
My right hon. Friend regrets that the Press notice of 19th April did not make it clear that hard shoulders as well as verges are to be provided on the section of the A1(M) motorway between Hatfield and the Clock Roundabout at Welwyn, Hertfordshire.
