HC Deb 23 May 1979 vol 967 cc139-40W
Mr. Ronald Bell

asked the Minister of Transport when he intends to announce the starting date of the public inquiry into the route of the M25 between Egham and Maple Cross.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke:

This length of the proposed M25 is divided into a number of sections. The Egham to Yeoveney section is under construction and a public inquiry has already been held into the Yeoveney to Poyle section.

Public inquiries into the remaining sections northwards to Maple Cross are expected to be held this autumn. The arrangements will be announced as soon as possible.
