§ Mr. Cryer
asked the Minister of transport if he will repeat the assurances given by the then Under-Secretary in an Adjournment debate on 15 February initiated by the hon. Member for Keighley regarding the conduct and provision of information at the public inquiry into the proposed Airedale trunk road.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
Yes. I confirm that the Airedale public inquiry will be 139W held in accordance with the new procedural arrangements for inquiries introduced last year, following the report on highway inquiry procedures. These cover the conduct of the inquiry and the provision of information.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke:
The public inquiry is now planned for early 1980. Details will be announced as soon as all the arrangements have been made.
