§ 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.
