HC Deb 19 July 1977 vol 935 cc511-2W
Sir David Renton

asked the Secretary of State for Transpor whether he will give an assurance that Exchequer funds will be available for the St. Ives relief road bypass and new bridge across the River Great Ouse, Huntingdonshire, the building of which is due to start in mid-1978.

Mr. Horam

No commitment is possible at this stage, but resources for local authority transport expenditure in 1978–79 will be lower than in the current financial year. Precise allocations will depend on consideration of counties' transport policies and programmes, due to be submitted shortly, as part of the transport supplementary grant settlement at the end of this year.
