§ Mr. Michael Marshall
asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether, pursuant to the letter to the hon. Member for Arundel from the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport dated 13 June, he is now in a position to announce what progress has been made in implementing an agreed work programme for the Crossbush section of the proposed Arundel bypass.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
We have not yet completed investigations into the possibility of building the eastern section of the Arundel bypass ahead of the rest. Work is proceeding as quickly as possible. I will make an announcement as soon as I can.
