§ Mr. Thurnham
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will reconsider his decision not to build route 225 as a trunk road; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The Greater Manchester county council has sent me a detailed report arguing that route 225 should be afforded trunk road status. I have asked my staff to study the report and discuss it with GMC. No decisions have yet been taken.
