§ 53. Mr. Newton
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will consider assuming financial responsibility for the A120 in Essex, in view of its importance for port traffic.
§ Mr. Horam
My right hon. Friend will meet the full cost of improvements to the A604 between Colchester and Harwich, which he proposes to take over as a trunk road. But the A120 west of Colchester is not of sufficient national importance to justify similar treatment.
