HC Deb 19 December 1986 vol 107 cc831-2W
Mr. Walters

asked the Secretary of State for Transport when an announcement will be made as to the successful contract tender for the Warminster bypass.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

The tenders received for this scheme are above the Department's estimate. They are therefore being subjected to a detailed scrutiny. I nevertheless hope it will prove possible to award the contract by the end of the year.
