HC Deb 06 March 1990 vol 168 c543W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what new road building funded by his Department is planned for the city of Liverpool for the next decade.

Mr. Atkins

There are none of our trunk roads within Liverpool. We support local authority spending on some of their more important roads through transport supplementary grant (TSG), currently paid at 50 per cent. of accepted expenditure. In Liverpool we are at present supporting phases of the Park road relief road and the Great Howard street improvement. It is for the city council to settle its forward programme and the schemes to be included in future annual bids for TSG.
