§ Mr. Pawsey
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what, further to his reply to the hon. Member for Rugby and Kenilworth dated 11 November, is the percentage of traffic on the M1 represented by the 16,000 to 20,000 vehicles referred to as being likely to transfer from the M1 to the M40.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The 16,000 to 20,000 vehicles per day quoted in my reply to my hon. Friend on 11 November as expected to transfer from the M1 to the M40 represents up to around 20 per cent. of the traffic expected to be using the M1 prior to the opening of the M40.
