HC Deb 06 November 1980 vol 991 c659W
Mr. Stanbrook

asked the Minister of Transport when he expects to be able to announce his decision as to the line of the Swanley to Sevenoaks sector of the M25.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

I hope to be able to announce a decision soon. I regret the delay but this is a very controversial scheme where the decision must take full account of many complex issues and substantial evidence placed before the inspector at the public inquiry.
