HC Deb 12 July 1984 vol 63 c626W
Mr. Thurnham

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has for the trunking of major through routes in Greater Manchester following the proposed abolition of the metropolitan county council.

Mrs. Chalker

In the light of responses to our consultation paper, "Reorganisation of Local Government in the Metropolitan Areas: Reallocation of Transport Responsibilities", we are considering whether there should be any extensions to the existing trunk road network in those areas.
