HC Deb 19 November 1979 vol 974 cc63-4W
Mr. Hal Miller

asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the increased expenditure on motorway maintenance anticipated next year, he will ensure that every precaution is taken to minimise the effect on traffic flows and traffic danger.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

A programme of major repair is necessary during the next few years to keep our motorways in the condition necessary for safe use.

We shall continue to make every effort to minimise the traffic disturbance which these works can cause.
