HC Deb 26 November 1979 vol 974 cc534-5W
Mr. Fry

asked the Minister of Transport whether either of the figures he gave, Official Report, 12 November, column 456, for the predicted traffic flows made in 1971 for the M23 in 1976 and 1991 were calculated on the assumption that the northern terminal of the M23 would not be at Hooley.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The predictions were made on the assumption that M23 to Mitcham and M25 south of the Thames would both be completed. As my answer indicated, more traffic used the road in 1978 than would have been predicted for the present incomplete system.
