HC Deb 20 February 1973 vol 851 cc93-4W
Mr. Hooson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what consideration he has given to the suggestions of the Welshpool Civic Society made to him for the sign-posting of alternative routes to bypass Welshpool; or if he will take alternative steps as an interim measure to relieve the problem of traffic congestion through Welshpool in the summer months.

Mr. Peter Thomas

The suggested alternative routes are being examined. But traffic congestion in Welshpool cannot be overcome without the construction of a trunk road bypass. The investigation of possible routes for it is proceeding.
