§ Mr. Enoch Powell
asked the Minister of Transport when he expects to announce provisional dates for starting and completing construction of the M.1-M.6 link between Ray Hall and Catthorpe.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
The date for starting construction will depend on the time it takes to complete the statutory processes and to acquire the necessary land. It is too soon to announce precise target dates yet, but on present plans it is expected that construction work on these sections of the motorway will be completed in 1970/71.
