HC Deb 08 November 1976 vol 919 c10W
Mr. Pardoe

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list in the Official Report the following information concerning the St. Columb bypass, on the A39: the cost of construction, the cost of labour, the number of man/weeks worked in total and 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 accepted tender for this scheme is £1.22 million. The final construction costs will not be known until after the work is complete. The remaining information requested is not available or could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
