§ Mr. Monro
Is the Secretary of State aware that there is widespread feeling in the south of Scotland that the advance south over the Border of this important new road is being delayed because England is dragging her feet? Will he consult his Scottish right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport to see if something can be done about it?
§ Mr. Steele
Is my right hon. Friend aware that I received a letter from one of his predecessors in 1955 indicating that this double carriageway road from Carlisle to Uddingston would be completed by 1965? How far are we from that promise?
§ Mr. G. Campbell
In the same vein, does the Secretary of State agree that this is an important industrial artery for Scotland? Will he keep up the momentum of the work on this dual carriageway, not since 1938 but of more recent years?
