HC Deb 28 June 1988 vol 136 c197W
Mr. Speed

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he can now give details for the letting of the first of two major contracts for the construction of the M20 motorway between Hollingbourne and Ashford, Kent.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

Following the review referred to in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Hornchurch (Mr. Squire), on 20 June, at column455, the date for return of tenders has been extended to 5 September. We plan to let the first contract later this year.
