HC Deb 05 July 1979 vol 969 c700W
Mr. John Browne

asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the public concern resulting from the delay in providing the inspector's report on the Winchester section of the M3, he will seek to expedite production and publication of the report; and when he expects to be able to announce his decision on the matter.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

We understand that the inspector has recently re-started work on the report. The planning inspectorate staff of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment has offered any help he requires.

My right hon. Friends will reach their decision as soon as possible after the report is received, but we cannot yet say when that will be.

Forward to
