§ LORD MANCROFT
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they can give the date upon which work on the Western half of the Cirencester by-pass will begin and the approximate date upon which the whole of the Cirencester by-pass is expected to be completed.
§ LORD GARNSWORTHY
The highway authority, Gloucestershire County Council, hope to start work on the Western by-pass in the autumn of 1974, for completion in the spring or late summer of 1976, depending on the contract period. The trunk road Eastern by-pass is expected to be completed in February, 1975.
House adjourned at five minutes before eight o'clock.
