HC Deb 12 March 1998 vol 308 cc266-7W
Ms Walley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will place in the Library the new appraisal criteria to be used in respect of the proposals currently being submitted from regional offices to the Roads Review. [33880]

Ms Glenda Jackson

The new appraisal framework which we are developing to help us determine the new trunk road investment programme uses our previously published criteria of integration, accessibility, safety, economy and environmental impact. We expect to publish further details with the report of the Roads Review later this year.
