§ Mr. van Straubenzee
asked the Minister of Transport what he expects his motorway building programme to be in 1980–81; and how this compares with 1979–80 in real terms.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
So far this year, work has started on motorway contracts valued in total at over £130 million; most of it on M25. By the end of March this should have risen to at least £165 million—in real terms worth nearly three times the schemes started in 1979–80.
