§ Mr. Latham
asked the Minister of Transport what proposals he has for a bypass round Bottesford, Leicestershire, for the A52 trunk road; what is the result of the recent route assessment survey; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
The route assessment survey of the A52 between Nottingham and the Al near Grantham recommended a number of improvements, including a bypass for Bottesford. I shall let my hon. Friend know as soon as we decide whether to add a bypass scheme to the trunk road preparation pool.
