HC Deb 23 July 1980 vol 989 cc252-3W
40. Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Minister of Transport what estimate he has made of the effect which recent reductions in the road programme will have on Great Britain's future economic performance.

Mr. Fowler

This Government spent more last year than in the two previous years. I, for my part, have stabilised the programme, not reduced it further, and am giving priority to schemes which will do most to aid economic recovery and development.
