§ Mr. Fearn
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) if he has made an assessment of the impact on traffic levels on the A27 Folkestone to Honiton trunk road as a result of the construction of a new Kent-Hampshire motorway; and if he will make a statement;
(2) if he has any plans to construct a new motorway from Kent to Hampshire; and if he will make a statement;
(3) whether a provisional route for a new Kent-Hampshire motorway has been decided upon; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Atkins
I have no plans for a new motorway from Kent to Hampshire. The possible need for a new east-west route has not been established.
