HC Deb 29 April 1981 vol 3 c414W
23. Mr. Haselhurst

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received about a service area on the M11 motorway since his announcement that he would consider alternatives to the Birchanger site; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The only representation we have received, from Essex county council, is that a service area should be located at Harlow. We are seriously studying this and other possibilities but still consider that Birchanger would be the best location for a service area on the M11.
