§ Sir C. Osborne
asked the Minister of Transport if she will give higher priority to the Humberside Development, trunk road A.18, as requested by the Grimsby Rural District Council's letter to her of 11th February; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mr. Swingler
The letter urges the highest possible priority for the Brigg bypass. I appreciate the need, but the current five-year trunk roads programme is full with even more urgent schemes. The bypass will be carefully considered for the next extension of the programme.
