§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what is his latest estimate of his Department's spending on trunk road improvements in Wales for each of the next three years, together with the outturn for 1990–91, and the current planned spending for 1991–92 for such purposes.
§ Sir Wyn Roberts
As indicated in the Welsh Office departmental report (Cm. 1516), provisional net outturn for motorway and trunk road new construction and improvement in Wales in 1990–91 is £163 million; planned net expenditure in 1991–92 is £147 million. No firm decisions have been taken on the Secretary of State's allocation of block resources for 1992–93 to 1994–95, though provision for the motorway and trunk road programme in Wales is expected to exceed £550 million during this period.
