HC Deb 08 May 1989 vol 152 c341W
Mr. Bowis

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has made, or will make, an environmental impact assessment on the western environment improvement route; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

No decision will he taken on the western environmental improvement route until the west London assessment study has been completed later this year. If it is then decided to proceed with the scheme, an environmental assessment will be produced in accordance with the Highways (Assessment of Environmental Effects) Regulations 1988 (S.1. 1988/1241).
