HC Deb 03 December 1984 vol 69 c32W
40. Mr. Maude

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received on the proposed northern relief route for the west midlands.

Mrs. Chalker

Some 6,000 completed questionnaires have been received in response to the public consultation exercise. In addition about 300 written representations have been submitted together with responses from local authorities and other interested bodies. We are currently considering all these and hope to announce our decision in the new year.
