HC Deb 23 July 1993 vol 229 c403W
Mr. Miller

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether the Hooton spur of the M53, north of junction 5, was built as part of a road scheme linking the M53 to a projected Dee barrage.

Mr. Key

The spur at junction 5 of the M53 was constructed in the 1970s for a possible link with the M56 to the west of Ellesmere Port.
