HC Deb 14 January 1987 vol 108 c236W
23. Mr. Lambie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will increase the expenditure on roads in Scotland in the next five years to allow for more motorway construction.

Mr. Rifkind

In cash terms, projected total expenditure on motorways and trunk roads in Scotland for 1987–88 is £125 million compared with £115 million in the current year. Expenditure in subsequent years is planned to maintain a similar progression, and will provide for a significant number of new motorway schemes.
