HC Deb 03 July 1978 vol 953 c81W
Mr. Ronald Atkins

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will set up a study on the likely impact on the economy of central London of the completion of the M25; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Horam

Completion of this road will benefit the country as a whole. I doubt the value of a study such as my hon. Friend suggests: so much can influence the economy of central London and it would be hard to disentangle the effects of one road, however important.
