HC Deb 23 May 1979 vol 967 c137W
Mr. Alton

asked the Minister of Transport if he proposes to announce a decision on whether to extend the urban section of the M62 motorway, bearing in mind the blighting effect that the scheme is having on many properties.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

There are no proposals to extend M62 into Liverpool as part of the national network. This was announced some years ago when it was made clear that any extension would be the responsibility of Merseyside county council as local highway authority.
