HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c43W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if Her Majesty's Government intend to integrate the Mersey tunnels into the national road network; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ridley

We have no present plans to include the tunnels in the trunk road network. The consultation paper which accompanied the White Paper "Streamlining the Cities"—(Cmnd. 9063)—invited proposals from district councils in metropolitan county areas for the future management of very large assets, such as the Mersey tunnels, which affect more than one district.
