HC Deb 02 February 1977 vol 925 cc177-8W
Mr. Fitch

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will provide a list of all major road schemes with estimated starting dates at present in the preparation pool.

Mr. Horam,

pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 1st February 1977; Vol. 924, c. 106–18], circulated the following amendments and additions:
