HC Deb 08 November 1976 vol 919 cc9-10W
Mr. Pardoe

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list in the Official Report the following information covering the Launceston bypass on the A30: the cost of construction, the cost of labour, the number of man/weeks worked, the number of man/weeks worked by local labour, the balance of payments cost of all imported machinery and energy, respectively, used directly in the construction work and the total capital cost of all machinery used; and what proportion of this was made in Great Britain.

Mr. Horam

The tender price accepted was £5.56 million. Final construction costs will not be available for some time. The remainder of the information requested is either unavailable or could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
