HC Deb 28 March 1979 vol 965 c216W
45. Mr. Hannam

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what are the latest figures for deaths and injuries to motor cyclists; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Horam

Following is the information:

years; and whether past underspending will have any effect on the completion of the trunk road programme envisaged in the White Paper"Policy for Roads England 1978."

Mr. William Rodgers

The total under-spend between 1976–77 and 1978–79 is likely to be about £162 million—at November 1977 prices. The provision made in the White Paper on the Government's public expenditure plans—Cmnd. 7439—is sufficient to meet foreseeable needs for trunk road construction in the medium term. The question of carry-over, therefore, does not arise.
