HC Deb 06 April 1987 vol 114 c42W
16. Mr. Madel

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has any further information as to the likely starting date for the construction of the Leighton-Linslade bypass; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

My right hon. Friend's decision to confirm Bedfordshire county council's orders for the bypass is the subject of an application to the High Court by an objector to the scheme. Until this is determined no work can begin.
