HC Deb 18 February 1976 vol 905 c706W
Mr. Edge

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what environmental impact the building of the A5(D) in Milton Keynes will have on the Roman settlement of Magiovinium.

Mr. Marks

The line of the A5 diversion avoids the scheduled area of the Roman settlement of Magiovinium. A magnetometer search and exploratory dig, followed by excavations where necessary, will, however, be carried out on land taken for the trunk road in the vicinity of the scheduled area, before construction starts.
