§ Mr. Murphy
asked the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the reply of 23 March, Official Report, c. 315, if a decision can now be announced on the completion of the upgrading of the A1 at Hatfield to motorway standard.
§ Mrs. Chalker
No. I had hoped to make an announcement by this time, but I regret that I do not now expect to be able to do so until the autumn. I shall do so as soon as possible.
