HC Deb 28 January 1981 vol 997 cc449-50W
44. Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is the latest estimated cost of the Liverpool inner ring road.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The Liverpool inner ring road is a local road scheme and, as such, solely the responsibility of the statutory highway authority, Merseyside county council. Questions about the project are, therefore, for the county council to answer.
