§ Mr. Trippier
asked the Minister of Transport whether, in the interests of saving public expenditure, he will take steps to stop the construction of unnecessary lighting on the M62 and the bypasses connected to it.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
No. The installation of lighting on M62 in Greater Manchester is almost complete. To cease work now would result in no financial saving; indeed, the £1 million spent would be wasted. I am satisfied that this lighting is necessary.
