HC Deb 20 June 1988 vol 135 cc444-5W
35. Mr. David Marshall

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will prepare a new motorway construction programme for Great Britain; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

We are continuing to develop and improve the trunk road and motorway network. The need for further motorway development is closely monitored and new schemes are added to the programme as the need is identified. Motorways in Scotland and Wales are the responsibility of my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Scotland and Wales.
