HC Deb 27 November 1995 vol 267 c500W
Mr. Sumberg

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he will make a decision in relation to the future of the proposals of his Department for a M62 relief road. [665]

Mr. Watts

I have received a large number of representations about the scheme from my hon. Friend and others. From these, it is clear that the majority of people consulted about the relief road do not want it. In the light of consultation I have decided to withdraw plans to build the relief road.
