HC Deb 17 June 1997 vol 296 c150W
Ms Walley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans he has to tackle congestion on the M6; and if he will make a statement. [3752]

Ms Glenda Jackson

There are two schemes in the Roads Programme to widen sections of the M6 between junctions 11A and 16 and Junctions 16 to 19. However, we are committed to strategic review of the Roads 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 the M6.
