HC Deb 10 November 1976 vol 919 c172W
Mr. Spence

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what undertakings expressed or implied were given to the relevant EEC fund authorities with regard to the construction of the Malton bypass at the time EEC grants United Kingdom 59/73, United Kingdom 161/75 and United Kingdom 84/76 were negotiated by Yorkshire Farmers Bacon Factory Ltd. of Malton; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Bishop

No undertakings of any nature concerning the proposed Malton bypass were given either when these three applications were transmitted to the EEC or subsequently. None of the applications referred to the bypass, and in each case the applicants indicated that their plant had direct access to main arterial roads.
