HC Deb 08 February 1977 vol 925 cc614-5W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether the principle of cost benefit analysis in financing was applied to road projects (a) before the inception of the December cuts, and (b) subsequent to that date.

Mr. William Rodgers

Cost benefit analysis has been an element in the assessment of trunk road schemes since the mid-1960s and has been taken into account in recent decisions.
