HC Deb 25 June 1980 vol 987 cc228-9W
52. Mr. Madel

asked the Minister of Transport whether, following the publication of the White Paper, "Policy for Roads (England) 1980," he can give any further information on the reference to the need for a bypass for Dunstable, Bedfordshire; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

This Department has asked the county council whether it wishes to put forward a case for a bypass of Dunstable to be constructed in advance of the rest of the Thame-Stevenage route. Any such case would then be considered in relation to priorities for the trunk road programme as a whole.
