HC Deb 21 June 1990 vol 174 cc627-8W
Mr. Beith

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects proposals to be finalised for improvements to the A696 south of Ravenscleugh farm, Northumberland.

Mr. Atkins

If there are no land entry problems, improvements could be implemented before next winter. More than one landowner is involved and CPO procedures will be required. Should there be objections to a draft CPO considerably more time may be required for implementation.
