HC Deb 01 December 1988 vol 142 cc354-5W
Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he now expects the M66 from Portwood to Denton to be opened; and what are the reasons for the delay.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

By mid-1989. A few weeks delay has been caused by unforeseen difficulties during earthmoving operations and by additional work on the motorway communications.
