HC Deb 25 November 1980 vol 994 c74W
Mr. Haselhurst

asked the Mininter of Transport whether he believes Birchanger to be the only possible site for a sevice area on the M11 motorway; and if he will consider alternative plans.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Birchanger appears to be the best site for a service area on the M11, but we would have to be satisfied that it was compatible with the Stansted airport road proposals. We would welcome alternative proposals for a service area and consider any received with care.
