HC Deb 28 March 1979 vol 965 cc215-6W
Mr. Fry

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what has been the total amount of underspending in the English trunk road construction budget since 1976–77; what steps have been taken to carry forward this underspend for use in future

There has been a fall in road construction in recent years, but current proposals provide for stable levels of expenditure over the next four years which should safeguard employment.
