§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what consideration he has given to the desirability of making it a statutory requirement for the preferred line of a proposed motorway to be entered in local statutory registers for the benefit of intending house purchasers; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Armstrong
No. Local authorities are kept informed about my right hon. Friend's proposals for trunk roads and provide information about a preferred route to those who seek it. The "additional inquiries" form is commonly used by purchasers solicitors for this purpose.
