HC Deb 09 November 1988 vol 140 c210W
Mr. Ward

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he has yet received the independent inspector's report on the latest public inquiry about the final motorway link between the M27 and M3; and when contracts are likely to be placed.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

No. We hope to receive the report of the reopened public inquiry into the Bar End of Compton section of M3 shortly. The timing of construction depends upon the inspector's recommendations and the joint decisions of my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for the Environment and for Transport.
