HC Deb 01 March 1978 vol 945 c224W
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.
