HC Deb 13 February 1980 vol 978 cc722-3W
Mr. Beith

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will give particular attention to the accident record, including the recent tragedy, and to the frequent blocking of the A1 at Heiferlaw Bank by snow and ice when he assesses what priority to attach to the extension of the A1 Alnwick bypass.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The recent death of Sir James Woodeson, which I greatly regret, and other accidents that have occurred on the section of the A1 at Heiferlaw Bank, together with the delay and inconvenience caused by adverse weather conditions, will be taken into account in determining the priority to be given to the Alnwick bypass stage II in my current review of the trunk road programme.
