Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Minister of Transport for how many trunk road schemes in England, as listed in "Policy of Roads: England", Cmnd 7132, is work yet to start.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Work has not yet started on 340 of the 384 schemes listed in Cmnd, 7132 as "in preparation". Another contract has recently been placed and tenders have been invited for three more schemes and for two major contracts on schemes already started in part. Three schemes have been withdrawn from the programme and one has been subsumed in a larger proposal; announcements were made at the time.

Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make a statement on which of the 61 recommendations made by the Advisory Committee on Trunk Road Assessment he (a) accepts in full, (b) rejects in full and (c) accepts with reservations.

Mr. Fowler

I will write to the hon. Member.
