HC Deb 23 July 1975 vol 896 cc214-5W
56. Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the progress of the Beverley SW bypass and the northern approach road to the Humber Bridge.

Mr. Crosland

A local public inquiry into the draft proposals for the Beverley south-western bypass was held from 20th to 23rd May, and the inspector's report is now under consideration. Any new road to the Humber Bridge from north of the A63 trunk road would be the responsibility of the Humberside County Council. I understand that it attaches importance to the provision of such a road and hopes to commence works when resources permit.
