§ Mr. Kirkwood
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made in plans to upgrade 193W 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.
