HC Deb 21 May 1980 vol 985 c241W
5. Mr. Fry

asked the Minister of Transport if he proposes to take action on the statement in the Rayner report that the establishment of a road programme manager, coupled with a determination to progress schemes, seem badly needed.

Mr. Fowler

Yes. My Department will soon be establishing the post of road programme manager. It will provide a clear focus and point of responsibility for managing the trunk road programme, and will help in ensuring value for money and better progress with worthwhile schemes.
