HC Deb 26 March 1979 vol 965 c57W
Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will approach the EEC regional fund to secure finance to upgrade the A7 trunk road between Hawick and the M6 at Carlisle.

Mr. Gregor MacKenzie

Improvement schemes on trunk roads which might be considered for aid from the regional development fund are drawn from the trunk road programme. Two improvement schemes are planned on the A7 between Hawick and the border with England.
