HC Deb 31 October 1980 vol 991 c401W
Mr. Heddle

asked the Minister of Transport whether, following his answer to the hon. Member for Lichfield and Tamworth on 5 July 1979, he can now confirm that the statutory procedures are in the course of being concluded and that financial resources have been allocated to enable his Department to commence the construction of the grade-separated junction on the A38, Lichfield to Burton-on-Trent road, to Alrewas, Staffordshire.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The aim is to publish draft statutory and compulsory purchase orders concurrently at the beginning of 1981. If the planned level of expenditure on trunk road construction is maintained, funds should be available for this scheme in 1982–83.
