Mr. Hogg

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions when he proposes to reply to the letter from the right hon. Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham of 15 May regarding the dualling of the A46; and if he will make a statement on his proposals for the dualling of the A46. [3432]

Ms Glenda Jackson

My right hon. Friend the Minister for Transport wrote to the hon. Member on 12 June 1997. He said that we are committed to a strategic review of the Road Programme. The terms of reference are not yet settled so you will appreciate that I cannot say what the effects of the review will be for this scheme.
