§ 8. Mr. Ednyfed Hudson Davies
asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether further copies of the Colcon Survey Report on proposed routes for the A55 are now available and what representations he has received from local authorities and other bodies about the Report.
§ Mr. Ifor Davies
Further copies of the Report became available at the end of February and are being distributed to those who have requested them. My right hon. Friend has received the views of three local authorities, and the views of others are awaited. He has also had representations from other local bodies and individuals.
§ Mr. Hudson Davies
Is my hon. Friend aware that that news will be welcomed by local authorities which have had difficulty in finding copies for their members? What steps is his right hon. Friend likely to take in connection with 649 the Report? Will he give an assurance that he will take into account the strong feeling in the Conway and Deganwy area that any new crossing of the Conway River should be inland south of the existing bridges?
§ Mr. Davies
My right hon. Friend will carefully analyse the views put to him before he decides on what further studies are necessary.
