HC Deb 27 April 1988 vol 132 cc192-3W
Mr. Kirkwood

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made in plans to upgrade the A1 on the northern side of the border; and whether the proposals will extend the redevelopment as far as Lamberton in Berwickshire.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

Over the last seven years five major improvement schemes, plus several minor improvements, have been completed on the Al. There are proposals for a bypass of Cockburnspath, currently the subject of a public local inquiry, and for junction improvements on the Haddington bypass. Planned improvements do not extend to Lamberton.
