§ Mr. Greg Knight
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will include ways of improving traffic flows on both A614 and A165 in the further studies on road improvements in Yorkshire announced on 10 December. 
§ Mr. Spellar
The further studies on road improvements in Yorkshire announced by the Secretary of State in the Statement on Transport Investment on 10 December refer to the two Multi-Modal studies that have been undertaken in the Yorkshire and the Humber region: the South and West Yorkshire Multi-Modal Study (SWYMMS) and the Hull East-West Corridor Multi-Modal Study (HUMMS), on which Ministers expect to take decisions next year. Neither of these relate to the A614 or A165 roads over any of their lengths.
The A614 and A165 roads are the responsibility of East Riding of Yorkshire Council as local highway authority and the Government allocates funds annually to local authorities to spend on their transport infrastructure.
