§ Mr. Thurnham
asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects to announce the date for the public inquiry on the Denton-Middleton section of the M66 Manchester outer ring road.
§ Mrs. Chalker
We intend to publish draft orders later this year: there will then be provision for objections or representations to be made. Details of the public inquiry—which we expect to take place next year—would be announced after this.
