§ Mr. Dunnachie
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he proposes to take to prevent the proposed Ayr motorway bypass from being constructed in Glasgow, Pollock; and if he will make a statement.
§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
I assume the hon. Member is referring to Strathclyde regional council's section of the proposed A77 Ayr road route. My right hon.36W and learned Friend is at present considering objections which have been lodged against the proposals, and he will decide shortly whether to arrange for a public local inquiry to be held.
