HC Deb 13 November 2001 vol 374 c617W
Geraldine Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions what plans he has to improve road access to Morecambe and Heysham Port from the M6 Motorway. [13741]

Ms Keeble

Access from Morecambe and Heysham Port to the M6 is the responsibility of Lancashire county council. They have recently conducted a public consultation on the two proposed routes for a Heysham to M6 link road. When the position on the Lancaster district local plan is resolved, it is a matter for the council whether to submit a bid for funding from central Government.
