HC Deb 15 December 1981 vol 15 c96W
Mr. Arnold

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will now recommence design work on the A6(M) blue route Stockport north-south bypass.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

As my right hon. Friend and I told the House on 9 December 1981—[Vol. 14, c. 926.]—we are reviewing the trunk road programme at the moment. The results will be published in a White Paper after Christmas. We shall be considering whether we can resume design work on a number of bypasses, including that for Stockport.
