HC Deb 04 November 1997 vol 300 c179W
Mr. Bob Russell

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what has been the cost, including consultancy fees, of preparing plans for a proposed junction between the A 12 and A134. [13306]

Mr. Milburn

The junction onto the Al2 is part of a phased development for a new major road in North Colchester. Costs for producing the master plan for the road have been borne by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health and the local authority for the area. Generally the costs of preparing the design for the junction itself has been the responsibility of the local authority. Information relating to the precise costs should be sought from the local authority.
