§ Mr. Tom Arnold
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is his detailed timetable for the construction of the A6 (M) Stockport north-south bypass.
§ Mr. Atkins
We expect to publish supplementary orders and a compulsory purchase order in autumn next year. Progress after that depends upon how much objection there is to them. A public inquiry will be necessary if there are unresolved objections. I am writing to my hon. Friend.
