§ 41. Mr. Langford-Holt
asked the Minister of Transport how many miles of the London to Holyhead road, running between London and Shrewsbury, are considered too narrow for this type of main road; what steps he proposes to take to bring the whole length of the road up to a satisfactory width; and when this work will be completed.
§ Mr. Callaghan
This road is generally adequate for its present traffic and, in view of existing economic conditions, my right hon. Friend does not intend to carry out any major widening schemes in the near future.
